    I saw this painting [La Biancheria] at a Brooklyn museum watercolor show about 2 years ago. . . I love [this painting] because it looks deceptively simple. He had to know exactly what he wanted and how to get there before he began. I think watercolor appears to be spontaneous but not in this case.  He did not paint the laundry, he had to leave it blank and paint in the other parts around the laundry. . .
