Happy Birthday Matisse!

Born on December 31, 1869.

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” -Matisse

Matisse retrospective

Matisse had an instinctual talent for capturing movement, as seen in his Dance series. It is always fun to see what inspires beautiful art, so I included a photo, above.

“I don’t paint things. I only paint the difference between things.” -Matisse

He was the master of the line – and pattern, across a range of techniques. No small feat.

“Creativity takes courage”   -Matisse

And, at the same time, one of the foremost colorists of the twentieth century.

While we are raising our glasses this evening, let’s be sure to do a toast to Henri Matisse and his contributions to the art world. Happy New Years Eve, everyone!
