"In 1939 I said: when the Renaissance wanted to imitate the immortal Greece, the result was Raffaello.
Ingres wanted to imitate Raffaello, the result was Ingres.
Cèzanne wanted to imitate Poussin, the result was Cèzanne.
Dalì wanted to imitate Meissonnier, the result was Dalì.
He who does not imitate is destined to become nobody.
Today: Van Roy wants to imitate only Dalì,
the result will be Van Roy as he is already Dalì"
