Bonnard to Matisse


A Letter from Bonnard to Matisse from the book Bonnard/Matisse: Letters Between Friends holding many of their correspondences --

....My work is going pretty well, especially in the direction of understanding.  During my morning walks I amuse myself by defining different conceptions of landscape -- landscape as space, intimate landscape, decorative landscape, etc.  But as for vision, I see things differently every day, the sky, objects, everything changes continually, you can drown in it.  But that's what brings life.  I hope that as the days grow longer I will soon be able to come to Nice and will be happy to see you....

How true.
