Everything Matisse

"Exactitude is Not Truth," Henri Matisse


I finally found the mother lode of internet data on Henri Matisse. Why did that take so long? henri-matisse.net rocks! Thanks to Museworthy for the link.

Casey, I could hug you! In fact, consider yourself hugged (no offence Mrs Casey :)

I have fallen in love with gouache, but have been chasing its tail. I had access to a wonderful Matisse book in Australia but it obviously wasn't the right time - I admired the work very much but it didn't make we want to hug anyone ;)

This is a wonderful link and today has felt like Christmas as a result of you posting it. Thanks!!!!

It pays to surf around a bit! Glad to help, Robyn.

Thanks for the link! I enjoyed viewing the chronology and how Matisse pared down to the essence of the thing itself. Hard to see that evolution when viewing only a few masterpieces here and there. I have a print of HM painting with a long bamboo stick while smoking a cigar -- just love it! Thank you again, Casey --
