Claude Monet, The dinner (c. 1868-1869, Foundation E. G. Bührle Collection, Zurique).
«A house too may possess that strange inscrutable quality of the True Romance. Not shallow, showy, and pretentious as most modern mansions are, but full of a still, quiet earnestness which seems to lull and soothe the spirit with promises of peace. Such a house is the greatest achievement possible to the art of man better than the greatest picture, because it is not a dream alone, but the dream come true - a constant daily influence and delight».---
