I went to the penultimate day of the Matisse to Malevich exposition in the Amsterdam Hermitage for some visual inspiration.

Stunning works by Matisse, especially his red room:

Red Room

Not much a fan of the inbetweenist fauvist works on display, though most of them looked nice. The various Picassos strewn about were a welcome distraction.

Like I tweeted, you have all this colour and style and visual artistry, and then you get: Malevich. Black Square; game, set and match.

Hard to imagine a bigger “Fuck you!”
