La Peinture: Denis Diderot 1

La peinture c’est l’art d’arriver à l’âme par entremises des yeux. Si l’effet s’arrête aux yeux, le peintre n’a fait que le moindre partie du chemin.

Painting is the art of reaching out to the soul through eyes. If the effect didn’t go beyond the eyes, the painter only walked one half of his way.

Denis Diderot, Salon de 1769.
