Henri Matisse

Outstanding French artist
I do not repudiate any of my paintings but there isn't one of them that I would not redo differently, if I had it to redo. My destination is always the same but I work out a different route to get there.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Time extracts various values from a painter's work. When these values are exhausted the pictures are forgotten, and the more a picture has to give, the greater it is.More Henri Matisse quotes [07/22/2011 04:07:29]
Simple colours can affect the intimate feelings with all the more force because they are simple.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have always sought to be understood and, while I was taken to task by critics or colleagues, I thought they were right, assuming I had not been clear enough to be understood. This assumption allowed me to work my whole life without hatred and even without bitterness toward criticism, regardless of its source. I counted solely on the clarity of expression of my work to gain my ends. Hatred, rancor, and the spirit of vengeance are useless baggage to the artist. His road is difficult enough for him to cleanse his soul oMore Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything that we see in our daily lives is more or less distorted by acquired habits and this is perhaps more evident in an age like ours when cinema posters and magazines present us every day with a flood of ready-made images which are to the eye what prejudices are to the mind. The effort to see things without distortion demands a kind of courage; and this courage is essential to the artist, who has to look at everything as though he were seeing it for the first time.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
