I really like this piece. It's strange but i found in this work (above) similar qualities of structure and colour that brought to mind an odd cubist painting by Matisse called (something like) 'Head, White and Rose', from around 1913/14, (perhaps you may have come across it?). i've never stood in front of the painting but pictures of that matisse, disturb me - whilst at the same time beguiling me, like no other of his works.
I know the one, White and Rose Head. Its an odd sort of piece, its in the Pompidou , can't remember if I have seen it in the flesh or not.
I ll go hunting for it next time i am there . and Thanks Terry !!!
