The first gallery of paintings showed how Matisse was taught to paint copies of the masters, but learned to develop his own interpretation of the classic compositions, beginning with a series of paintings on the subject of Arcadia. What a great subject for a series of poems.
I was captivated by this drypoint of Greta Prozor.
