• La Musique , De muziek 1910


    Music is an art form that involves what are sometimes organised sounds and silence, although in some forms of 20th century aleatoric, and indeed improvisational music, as well as most Eastern traditions such as Gamelou, this is not the case. It is expressed in terms of pitch (which includes melody and harmony), rhythm (which includes tempo and meter), and the quality of sound (which includes timbre, articulation, dynamics, and texture).

    Music may also involve generative forms in time through the construction of patterns and combinations of natural stimuli, principally sound. Music may be used for artistic or aesthetic, communicative, entertainment, ceremonial or religious purposes and by many composers purely as an academic instrument for study.

    The definition of what constitutes music varies according to culture and social context, with varied interpretations of the term being accepted under sub-genres of the art. Within "the arts", music can be classified as a performing art, a fine art, or an auditory art form.

  • In 1905 Matisse and his associates, notably André Derain and Maurice de Vlaminck,
    caused a sensation at the Salon d'Automne with their brilliantly coloured,
    raw-factured canvases which earned them the label 'Fauves' (wild beasts).
    Matisse, however, also attracted his first patrons, the Stein family,
    and soon after Claribel and Etta Cone of Baltimore.
    In 1908 Matisse opened his own painting school in Paris and exhibited abroad,
    at New Gallery in London, at '291' in New York, at the Golden Fleece Salon in Moscow,
    and at the Paul Cassirer Gallery in Berlin.
    In 1909 he signed his first contract with Bernheim-Jeune,
    Paris, and took a house at Issy-les-Molineaux.
    At the invitation of his patron, Sergei Shchukin,
    he visited Moscow in 1911 and at the end of the year left for a visit to Tangier.
