A sign is enough to suggest a face…

I was looking over my notes from the Matisse exhibition in Brisbane… but this blog, Art Matters – My thoughts on art, life, and whatever… Carol Lee Beckx – had the exact quote I did not quite get right:

“A sign is enough to suggest a face, there is no need to impose eyes and a nose on people…It is important to leave room for the spectator’s reverie.”
and
“My line drawing is the purest and most direct translation of my emotion.”
Henri Matisse 1951
