    It might not be what you're looking for but Malraux wrote "les tableaux naissent des tableaux". Loosely translate to "artworks are born from artworks".
    What it basically means is that the purest form of inspiration always expresses itself with a certain degree of bias / influence from memories of existing work. (source : "manifeste des plasticiens")

    I'm sure this idea has been mentionned by many figureheads in the field, and this is only one of them.
