More from Matisse
Although he wrote and spoke many wonderful things about art, Matisse was very skeptical about the usefulness of painters' reliance on words. As I try to build this blog, I will remember his wise warning: "A painter who addresses the public not just in order to present his [sic] works, but to reveal some of his ideas on the art of painting, exposes himself to several dangers ...I am fully aware that a painters' best spokesperson is his work" (Notes from a painter, 1908).
