What is art? What is the act of creation? How is a painting done, how is sculpture created? How correct are the methods of learning and understanding a creative process at the modern stage? Have they changed in comparison with what had been before the appearance of the camera and the Square of Malevich?

Clearly, there is the immense strength of inertia, and new fans of the arts will always seek to imitate the ancient Greeks and the people of the Renaissance. They will defy nature, arguing with it in pursuit of perfection, but will in fact only become more like it. No matter how perfect and brilliant a craftsman is, his gigantic work could not come any closer to what His Majesty the Painter could create with the wave of his hands.
