Matisse makes a drawing, then he makes a copy of it. He recopies it five times, ten times, always clarifying the line.

In drawing, nothing is better than the first attempt. Pablo Picasso

Don't misunderstand me: shapes and colours, though, that sum up the idea of the two figures and preserve the vibration of their existence. Pablo Picasso
