maiden the name of Impression is given, and she
is characterised as the embodiment of that emotion
which thrills the soul of every true artist at the
sight of nature, and is as old as the world itself.
Impression, who for the nonce is a definition of
the indefinable, has been, according to M. Breton,
the constant companion of the true artist ever
since the first crude attempts were made to inter-
pret Nature by means of line and colour, but she
has ever quickly deserted the impostor or the fickle
lover. She left France, for instance, after the
French Revolution, and did not return until many
years after the establishment of the Republic,
when, to M. Breton's great joy, she came and
knocked at his own atelier. The concluding
chapter of this truly remarkable book, with its
subtle undercurrent of satire, consists of a conver-
sation between the poet painter and his visitor, in
which it must be confessed the lady scarcely rises
to the occasion. As, profoundly moved, the artist
raised her hands to his lips, feeling them tremble
beneath his caress, the glorious vision faded,
leaving him once more alone, but happy in the
conviction that Impression had been inspired
during the interview " not only with a divine enthu-
siasm for art, but also with the love and tenderness
of a true woman."
