if you live in London or you’ve visited there any time in the past 4 months you should already have gone to see the Matisse Cut-Outs exhibition that’s currently showing at the Tate. if you haven’t, then i’m reminding you to. why? because i can’t go. do it for me! take a pic and tag me on Instagram! i would LOVE that. it’s only on for another 2 weeks or so, so you’d better go.
“I wouldn’t mind turning into a vermilion goldfish.” – Henri Matisse
my top 10 lists are always changing – top 10 bands i want to see live (daft punk & arcade fire are usually in there), top 10 hottie actors (hello jon hamm, hello javier bardem), top 10 foods i would choose as my last meal (that is a particularly tough one) …but some of my top 10 famous artists are pretty easy to nail down: gauguin, van gogh, odilon redon, cezanne, rousseau, chagall, picasso and matisse amongst others. all at their most colourful periods.
sotheby’s is having an auction of impressionist & modern art on 22 june. thought i’d pick out my favourites and see what they’re going for…
