Meet Béraud. What would his opinion be on the oil-to-pixels question?


La peinture est l'art d'aller à l'âme par l'entremise des yeux; et si l'effet s'arrète aux yeux, l'artiste n'a fait que la moindre partie du chemin.

Denis Diderot, Essais su la peinture (1796)

Painting is the art of getting to the soul through the eyes; and if the effect stops at the eyes, the artist has only made the smallest part of the way.
