Pretty, Pretty

Last trip to the library to pick up books to feed Pippa’s literary voracity, I bumped into Matisse : From Color to Architecture, a compendious documentation of Matisee’s work before and during the design and construction of the Dominican chapel at Vence. As an ally of the Dominicans, an enthusiast for Matisse, and (as I just mentioned) a Francophile, I had to take the book out. It looks fascinating — though it triggers my caution that I’m reading out of my field, and I oughtn’t simply accept claims and analyses because they’re printed in an elegant book. . . .

    And yet, if they were not printed in an elegant (or not-so-elegant) book, you wouldn’t even have the opportunity to consider the claims and anlayses. . . let’s hear it for optimistic blind faith in others’ analyses and claims!
