"He never imitated the mere mannerisms, the superficial characteristics of the artists he admired. Always he strove for an understanding of the fundamental elements of their work; and there was nothing coldly intellectual in his use of others’ art. His own artistic nature was rich, so deeply sensuous, so healthily physical, so much in love with pigment and color, line and form, that everything he touched, even in his most obviously influenced works, was himself. Even when he was trying to paint a Picasso or a Braque, the result was pure Gorky."
