What impassions me most--much, much more than all the rest of my métier--is the portrait, the modern portrait. I seek it in colour, and surely I am not the only one to seek it in this direction. I should like--mind you, far be it from me to say that I shall be able to do it, although this is what I am aiming at--I should like to paint portraits which would appear after a century to people living then as apparitions.
