French national treasure: Henri Matisse

Je crois que ce que j’aime le plus chez Matisse, au delà de son génie pour la couleur, c’est le fait qu’il savait créer depuis son lit… Quelle leçon!

I think that what I like most about our dear Matisse, beyond his unparalleled mastery of color, is the fact that he was able to create incredible art without even leaving his bed… What a lesson!

      Right? I never took the time to really look into all of his work and I find myself amazed at the incredible variety of styles and even mediums… Truly fell in love again 🙂

  2. It’s his colour and pattern.
    “Creativity takes courage.” And he had courage too. A lesson for the rest of us probably.
