The painting is called "Gypsy" by artist, Nic Dartnell.
This was based on an article by Eleni K. ( author of the epigram's statement) who is a composer and wrote the musical score for an opera about Medea. Eleni is a woman who composes traditional music using the ancient instruments that were applied in old world Greece. She tried at first to engage a gypsy flutist who was an improviser, someone who played his music by spontaneous inspiration and feeling. He was brilliant but also a free spirit. And she learned that when he tried earnestly and very diligently to fit into the disciplined world of her music, he was like a caged bird. He was denied the surroundings and freedom to rely on his natural instincts and ways of composing.
