Good evening

I was hoping someone here could help me track down the following quote:

"No artist paints a tree because they have seen a tree.
They paint a tree because they've seen another picture of a tree."

What I've supplied is likely a rough approximation
but it should be reasonably close, and the gist is correct.
(I believe it originated with one of the French Impressionists.)

Thanks  for any help

Nichael
