“One day I said to Pablo:  ‘Why don’t you give me a few basic notions of painting so that I can orient myself a bit in that field?’ But he only answered: ‘The time will come when you will suddenly realize that, without any help from outside, you’ve learned all you need to know.  Anything I might explain to you meanwhile would be of no earthly use to you.’” (Dominguin, 1961)
