The view of a great painter

“Poverty may induce industry, but it does not produce the fine flower of painting. The
test is not poverty, it’s money. Give a painter money, and see what he will do : if he does not paint, his work is well lost to the world.” —Whistler.

(Socialist Standard, October 1927)
