Ah Vincent! -- our master of "concision and grace" -- here's his famous vase:
 
A vase on a table with about a dozen flowers of varying shades of yellow, tan and beige; a few at the top have darker centers and one on the left is green

I think your reference here is VERY relevant to Eliot's work.

From a recent interview on Matisse on Charlie Rose
re: current retrospective at MOMA:
 
"'All things considered, there is only Matisse' - Pablo Picasso"
"Questioner to Matisse 'Surely you don't put down intelligence?'
 Matisse: 'Yes. Ireject intellectulity. There is only instinct.' "
 
Cheers.
