"In the matter of paint Ryan has learnt most from Soutine ...
His [Ryan's] prolonged contemplation is reflected in the incredibly
rich texture of any given area of canvas. As we look into these mixtures
we are aware that the forms have evolved out of the handling of the
paint itself. Such identity of ends and means precludes, on the whole,
that imaginative failure so typical of English painting, the failure to
fuse the poetic idea and its pictorial statement. The vehicle of Ryan's
poetry is Ryan's colour and form."
