Majumdar remarks that "Things you think about when you're painting, to me, it's interesting… I'll be painting… and I'm daydreaming about a moment of the painting somewhere else. Some people when they work from life they're very much attuned to what they're observing, I often find when I work… I'm starting with something very straightforward and observing what is happening and then trying to find echoes of that in other parts of the painting."
Naves remarks: "From the early fauvist landscapes to the invention and refining of Cubism to the darker, more equivocal works of the 1940s and '50s, Pioneer of Modernism elaborates upon Braque's oeuvre with surprising depth. He emerges as a gentle temperament with tenacious gifts, a painter given to poetic and often moody reveries."
Painter Philip Koch blogs his thoughts on Vuillard's paintings of interiors: "Landscape painting might at first glance seem unrelated to Vuillard's interiors, but actually they're close cousins. Vuillard created what might be called "interior jungles" ... Anyone who's looked at the overwhelming complexity of a forest interior like those painted by a Barbizon School artist or an American like Worthington Witteredge has sensed this affinity."
