American artist Milton Avery: “I always take something out of my pictures, strip the design to essentials; the facts do not interest me so much as the essence of nature. I never have any rules to follow. I follow myself. I began painting by myself in the Connecticut countryside, always directly from nature…I have long been interested in trying to express on canvas a painting with a few, large, simplified spaces.”
