“We are all more or less animals and about three quarters of the human race look like animals. But you don’t. You are like a growing plant, and I wondered how I could convey that you belong more to the realm of plants than to that of animals. I have never yet felt so driven to paint someone in that way. Strange, isn’t it? I think it is quite right, nevertheless. It represents you exactly.” Pablo Picasso
