صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: لوحة منظر طبيعي مع بحيرة، زيت على قماش بمقاس 53×65.5 سم، المصدر: فرنسا من أواخر 1860 حتى أوائل 1870، في متحف قصر يوسوبوف، 1925 - رسم الفنان جون باتيست كاميل كورو.

While the French critical artist J. F. Raffaeli was walking beside the village Barbizon, he saw Y. B. Corot drawing a picture of fields with forests in the background. Raffaeli noticed that Corot drew a small pond amidst the fields. Therefore, he was astonished at this and asked Corot, “Why did you draw a pond of drinkable water while there is none?”

Corot answered, “Young man, it’s now eleven o'clock. I came to this field at six o'clock in the morning and I’m very thirsty. I drew this pond to refresh myself.”

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: أنا عطشان!

St-Takla.org Divider

My journey has been long.

I draw a picture of heaven in my heart,

So that it may spring abundantly with water from You O God,

That I would not require the water of this world which does not quench my thirst.
