A Garage in Brooklyn

A 9x12 pastel of a garage in Brooklyn.

I finished the first volume of the Matisse biography. I have always loved the great masterpieces like Red Studio and The Piano Lesson in MOMA, but now think there's much more I need to learn about Matisse, and quickly, especially about the paintings that are not easy to like. I will start the second volume of the biography shortly. In the meantime I am borrowing a pile of Matisse books from local libraries.

Cooool garage pastel! This is a favorite!

If you liked the first half, yo will love the second book. I will not give any spoilers!

Casey, Thanks. Brooklyn I have discovered is full of small, vestigial type structures, especially small garages. I am about a third of the way through the second volume.
