I hardly know where to start with Matisse. His colorful paintings captured my heart at a young age, and my affection for his work has never diminished. One place I absolutely want to visit one day is this chapel he designed in Vence, in the South of France. It was completed in 1951, after Matisse spent four years working on every aspect of the design. He called the result his masterpiece. Who am I to argue? Take Me To Church!
I love this intricately carved confessional door! A concept for some special door or screen I may design one day.
Matisse even designed the vestments for the priests! How rad are these?
