The scanner did a nasty thing here, looks as if this was a page someone found in an old house's attic...
This is a perfect image of how people try to escape space and time when travelling in a crowded metrocar: stare ahead, look down on your feets or the feets of others, read.
Today I found a quote I like by Emil Nolde (expressionist painter 1867 - 1956, there is a big exhibition with his works here in Paris at the moment which I have not seen yet but absolutely have to:):
"Der Maler braucht nicht viel zu wissen. Schön ist es,wenn er unter instinktiver Führung so zielsicher malen kann, wie er atmet, wie er geht"
"The painter need not know very much; best of all let him work instinctively and paint as naturally as he breathes or walks"
