Radical Invention.

You know that feeling when you see a painting you've loved forever, not in a book, online, or in the form of a postcard, but in real life? This happened yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art
where they are housing Matisse's work from 1913-17. Above is my favorite, The Piano Lesson, painted in 1916 and standing very large at 9x12. These pieces are among his most experimental, abstract, and for me, most unique: details are left behind, and questions fill their void. Check it out through October 11th.
