My art interests have always been what I call "traditional-modern" (what do I mean by that? go here...). So today what do I see while looking at online news but a new show of Matisse,
"Evolving Toward Ecstasy, Matisse Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art". Matisse is one of the true originators of the basic idea of traditional-modern "motif"; the directing of art expression toward what actual human beings, persons, find to be real life. Such a motif contrasted sharply with about 1500-2000 years of previous christian church-related art, and contrasts also with recent abstract-...-contemporary art directed toward what appear to me to be unimportant and self-aggrandizing "whatever".
...Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse (31 December 1869 – 3 November 1954) was a French artist, known for his use of colour and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. ... Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define ["new art forms"] in the opening decades of the 20th century... a leading figure in modern art.
