Aus des Werkstatt Henri Matisse

Hans Purrmann informs us that the artist [Matisse] had a real horror of "holes" in paintings, and that he would go to the Louvre with Marquet to track down just such faults in the canvases
of the masters (they are said to have abandoned this little game when faced with the prospect of seeing the whole history of Western painting deflate like a balloon before their very eyes).
