The NPfIT and Cézanne compared

Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point, sees similarities between the malfunctioning NPfIT and the exploratory brushstrokes of Cézanne,  the French painter whose works grew out of a slow process of refinement, trial and error.

The comparison is, perhaps, the greatest success of the NPfIT. 

It may be worth noting that, at one point in his career, Cézanne, because of a shortage of models, was forced to design from his imagination.
