Pasiphaé: Chant de Minos (Les Crétois) by H. de Montherlant 

Henri Matisse, 1944

“Expression, for me, does not reside in passions glowing in a human face or manifested by violent movement. The entire arrangement of my picture is expressive; the place occupied by the figures, the empty spaces around them, the proportions, everything has its share.”
-Henri Matisse
