This is one of my favorite photographs. Towards the end of Matisse's life he was confined to his bed. It was still neccessary for him to create. He improvised with a stick and paint on his wall. That kind of creative spirit is beautiful. This picture will always be a reminder to never let life's challenges keep you down.
The Thousand and One Nights, 1950
This is one of my favorites. Maybe because it looks like a page out of his sketch/cut-out book.
Matisse was 81 when he created this one, inspired by Scheherazade, the heroine of the eipc Arabian Nights.
