This story about Matisse is probably apocryphal, but it’s a great illustration of an important point: a minute of effort may reflect a lifetime of practice.

I believe there is a similar version of this story of Picasso sitting in a cafe where 2 ladies ask to buy the napkin that he is drawing on. He quotes a huge amount and the ladies are shocked. and Picasso responds that I have been at it for over 30 / 60 years.
