Quote
  • “- Vincent van Gogh: Paintings have to be done in one clear gesture.
    - Paul Gauguin: Think about the surface that you're painting on and how the paint will sit on it. You're changing things so fast, you can't even see what you've done.
    - Vincent van Gogh: Paintings have to be painted fast. The painters I like all paint fast in one clear gesture, each stroke. You've heard of a stroke of genius? Well, that's what it means.
    - Paul Gauguin: You don't even paint that way. You paint fast and you overpaint. Your surface looks like it's made out of clay. It's more like sculpture than painting.”

    Willem Dafoe - Vincent van Gogh
    Oscar Isaac - Paul Gauguin
