One of the most difficult things of all is not to have the painting be a depiction of the event but the event itself. That is the difference between great art and mediocre art. Most art looks like it is talking about something that happened some other place.

—Grace Hartigan, quoted in Mary Gabriel, Ninth Street Women (2018), p. 487
