Imposing exhibition at Centre Pompidou, focussing on paintings presented in twosomes.
Intriguing to observe how Matisse would finish a painting only to start over again with the same motive, ultimately ending up with a second, similar yet altogether different, work of art!
To me, that refusal to stagnate is the mark of a major artist, and that goes not only for Henri Matisse, but also for Picasso, Prince, David Bowie...
