  1. Purrmann, writing as a student in Matisse’s “workshop,” reports: “Matisse’s efforts were directed to the establishment of a rigid discipline in his studio. He proclaimed the value of caution, he led painters back to the solid foundation of study, to a long and patient obsevation.” And he quotes Matisse as follows:’ You are not committing suicide if you lean more on nature and strive for an exact reproduction. You must first subject yurself to nature, recapture it, then motivate it and perhaps even heighten its beauty! But you must be able to walk well on the ground before you get on the tight-rope.’”
