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]
What interests me most is neither still life nor landscape: it is the human figure.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Expression is not a matter of passion mirrored on the human face or revealed by a violent gesture. When I paint a picture, its every detail is expressive.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One must, of course, have one's entire experience behind one and not have lost the freshness of instinct.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The essential thing is to spring forth, to express the bolt of lightning one senses upon contact with a thing. The function of the artist is not to translate an observation but to express the shock of the object on his nature; the shock, with the original reaction.More Henri Matisse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
