James McNeill Whister, Nocturne Battersea Bridge, 1872-1873, pastel on brown paper, Freer Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

If a man who only paints the tree, or flowers, or other surface he sees before him were an artist, the king of artists would be a photographer.  It is for the artist to do something beyond that.
