How invigorating it is to look at his work as he saw it. All those hours, daya and more that he started at the objects, the landscapes and the canvass which refracted the retina. At an exhibition, such as the one which continues at the Tate in Southwark until the 15th, one can spend but a fragment of that time in front of the work, such is the press of those upon which he had also worked. The light, the texture - these are far greater than even the best reproductions can convey: the world in an apple, which sounds preposterous but it is true, across a century and more, into these times when, the way that prices are going, he would have had to painted for such food.
