Painter asking the farmer for advice

  At the beginning of the 19th century, there was a famous painter named Joseph in the Royal Society of Art. He was very good at painting landscapes, and he was able to draw every detail in the landscape.
  One morning, Joseph came to paint outside a small town in Italy, where there are many mountains and rivers, as well as ancient bridges and castles. Joseph sat down to paint and completed a wonderful landscape in less than an hour. At this moment, a passing farmer looked at his painting and said, “This is a failed painting.” How dare a farmer dare to speak like this? If it were someone else, it would be furious, but Joseph thought that if someone said that, there must be a reason for him, so he smiled and asked, “Can you tell me more about it?” The farmer said: “It is morning, on the earth. There is a faint fog, so the castle and bridge in the distance are hazy, but you draw so clearly, this is obviously wrong. “Joseph said disapprovingly:” If you say, the picture must be very blurry, and How can we talk about beauty? “The farmer shook his head and said,” But this is the real nature. If you are in nature and paint according to your imagination, why come out of the studio and come here? ”
  Farmer When he had finished speaking, he left, but he gave Joseph a blow, and Joseph decided to paint again. This time, he erased many details in the distance, the river and children playing in the river nearby, the bridge in the distance, and the faintly visible castle and faint fog behind … The painting became extremely vivid And the reality, the sense of the picture has become stronger and deeper.
  That’s right, this painting is “The Palace and Bridges of Caligula” that is now collected in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Visible, humility is a ladder, it can make people climb higher. It is conceivable that if Joseph did not openly ask the farmer for advice, then the classic painting “The Palace and Bridge of Caligula” would not appear in the world.
