It rained, I read

In 1947 Matisse made 'Jazz', a book of painted papers cut into organic shapes and fixed to coloured backgrounds. He was inspired to continue the method in a larger format. He discovered that it was so simple to place the shapes correctly because he could move them around until he found the balance he was seeking. "This simplification guarantees precision" he said.
