From Our Editors

This book retains a favored place among my own works, not only because it was the first book I Published, but also because it has been especially meaningful and useful to artist. Because Matisse was so undogmatic in his wisdom he speaks persuasively to artist working in many different ways and in many different mediums. In fact, I think that for Matisse the ideal audience for his writings was one composed mainly of artist and students.

Editorial Reviews

"The publication of this anthology of forty-four of Matisse's 'writings' on art is long overdue and should prove to be an extremely useful and popular addition to the growing documentary literature of twentieth-century art."--John Hallmark, "Burlington Magazine
