The student was saying to Colin, ‘For Christ’s sake, Colin, painting’s over, film is the art of the twentieth century … Painting’s had it, it’s still, it doesn’t move, it’s yesterday.’ And Colin looked at him for a while and he said, ‘Painting’s not over, do you know why?’ The guy said, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘Because it still doesn’t move.’ And I thought that was pretty sharp.  (Barry Lett as cited in Paton, 2005, p. 120).
