Friday afternoon Mr. Frank Morris gave a press conference. He allowed art
critics to call on him and told them what he thought about art. However, he
refused to talk about his technique. He said that a painter’s technique was an
inseparable part of his personality and as such it was simply indescribable. In
Mr. Morris’s opinion, speaking about technical aspects of painting was
unpardonable. To do so was to reduce art to the status of handicraft. And
nothing can be more humiliating to a true artist than being compared to.
