"When I paint, I'm tense always very feverish; an act of the will, in which I float between feeling and mind. The image that I paint, I take it from nature, without tying me to it. It is only the occasion, the non-visible Background. I am slowly forward, without that I in Individual know where it is. Only the entire image, I know at any time the work. So I paint a Form, add a line, a movement I oppose a counter-movement, scratch this, let the canvas Shine through, a pasty place in this, as I feel it and think I can actually explain the Why. I have no Schema, according to what I paint, everything is all right with me, to come to the result. A method is crystallized, so you should stop, because Routine and boredom to come. Spring, summer, autumn and Winter are always recurring, but always the one we are experiencing." (Emil Schumacher, 1949, in: Ausst.-Kat. Emil Schumacher. Paintings and gouaches, Neue Galerie der Stadt Linz/ Wolfgang-Gurlitt-Museum, 1976, o. p.)
