Matisse Dream

"To create is the artist's true function; where there is no creation there is no art. But it would be a mistake to ascribe this creative power to an inborn talent. In art, the genuine creator is not a gifted being, but a man who has succeeded in arranging a complex of activities for their appointed end, of which the work of art is the outcome. Thus, for the artist creation begins with vision." Seven paintings by Henri Matisse, arranged as if in a dream.
