Barber Pole Barn
This is an 18x24 oil of a famous barn in Hancock, MA on Route 43. The other barn is in the background left. The main barn is the distant one in the previous painting.
One more quote from the Schneider book on Matisse (I am almost done reading it): "...when myths are no longer viable, the process of identification remains the sole manifestation of the sacred. To 'go out of yourself,' in order to become one with the model--be it a parakeet, a shell, or a woman--to feel ecstasy, is to know the divine: 'Do I believe in God? --Yes, when I work.'" So said Matisse.
