Tyler Green on the Influence of Gris on Matisse

Tyler Green: Modern Art Notes has an interesting take on the influence of Juan Gris.
"Gris’s greatest influence on Matisse was to lead him away from color and toward composition so strict and rigorous that it might be better called architectonic. Gris’ influence on Matisse is most readily evident in Matisse’s shocking late-1914 portrait of his daughter Marguerite, titled Head, White and Rose (above)."
