Concerning the Spiritual in Art

‘Freshness of vision the child has, and freshness of vision is an important element in the new movement. The child has a direct vision, because (the) mind is unencumbered by association and because (the) power of concentration is unimpaired by a multiplicity of interests. (The) method of drawing is immature; its variations from the ordinary result from lack of capacity. […] The child draws a landscape. (The) picture contains one or two objects only from the number before (the) eyes. These are the objects which strike him as important. So far, good. But there is no relation between them; they stand isolated on his paper, mere lumpish shapes. The Post-Impressionist, however, selects (the) objects with a view to expressing by their means the whole feeling of the landscape. (The) choice falls on elements which sum up the whole, not those which first attract immediate attention.
