Emmanuel Chaussade: Henri Matisse
Henri Matisse. Self-Portrait in a Striped T-shirt (1906). From "Statens Museum for Kunst", Copenhagen, Denmark.
I first saw this photo in a class in the early 1970s and, I think, could have bought it for something like $250. But that was as unthinkable then as the price of $12,500 is now. Everything is relative, right? It's still one of my all-time favorites. Maybe just because of the light in Matisse's glasses.
