Pavel Jerdanowich ne se contente pas de suivre les chemins ordinaires de l'art. Il préfère découvrir, dans ce domaine, des régions escarpées, même s'il doit entrevoir des abîmes. Son esprit se complait dans le vertige, et il est en proie a des angoisses esthétiques au, ne vont pas sans souffrance.

[Pavel Jerdanowich is not satisfied to follow the beaten paths of art. He prefers to discover new lands, explore the heights, and peer into the abysses. His spirit delights in intoxication, and he is a prey to aesthetic agonies which are not experienced without suffering.]

--Comte Chabrier, Revue du Vrai et du Beau
