This portrait of Matisse by Andre Derain is one of my favorite paintings in the ENTIRE history of art. It personifies courage by color and has always been a source of inspiration. Seeing this among Derain’s other masterpieces today at Centre Pompidou was central to my art blitz this weekend in Paris. Spectacular. #andrederain#centrepompidou#paris#fauves#inspiration
