"I realize that waves can't just be portrayed, even if you used a still photograph as basis for the painting, as a wave like that would just stand still. In order to paint it in motion, you have to meticulously study every detail, the atmophere, the rhythm of the waves, and once you have captured everything, you have to quickly render it with all sensations. Only then will the depiction captivate the observer. Over the last couple of stays on the coast I became more and more convinced that I should exclusively paint the sea and become the master of the ocean – a challenging enterprise, considering that Courbet is the only one who truly captured the sea's infinity and omnipotence."
Quote from: Karl Hagemeister, ex. cat. Galerie Heinemann, Munich 1912, p. 18.
