from gladwell's 'what the dog saw' on the subject of genius and early blooming, put forward in regards to conceptual (picasso) v's experimental (cezanne) creativity...which basically refers the the fact that some people take a while to find their place and that it's no less a genius to have worked hard to find it...anyway read more about Galenson and his research into creativity here...

this is from picasso...

"I can hardly understand the the importance given to the word research,"

"In my opinion, to search means nothing in painting. To find is the thing."

"The several manners i have used in my art must not be considered as an evolution or as steps toward an unknown ideal of painting...i have never made trials or experiments."

cezanne (allthough seemingly was far too angry by the sound of things to comment most of the time, being busy throwing his paintings out the window or slashing them to pieces...said...

"I seek in painting."
