He swooshes into chunky volume with "So, let me just hip all you MOFOS out to the fact that medicine and painting have been related at least since the Medieval clerical institutions, if not earlier. It's in the language, it's in the literature. BREAKDOWN." Paraphrased, of course.

I'm still near the beginning because I keep going back for seconds.
