Música & Pintura

Edmund Dulac (in Myth & Moor)
«(…) it would be as foolish to expect a man to be a good performer upon any instrument, because he had learnt the theory of music, as it would be to suppose that he must necessarily paint in harmonious colouring, because he had studied the theory of balance in combination. To the experienced eye and hand, functions become intuitive, which, to the mere theorist, however profound, are toil and weariness of spirit.»
M. Digby Wyatt, W. R. Tymms, The History, theory, and Practice of Illuminating, London, Day and Son, 1861, 2.ª parte, pp. 9-10.
