What Vincent couldn't capture, that matisse just might have (it's hard to tell,
is how heliotropic the sunflower is.

                    From a recent interview on Matisse on Charlie Rose
                    re: current retrospective at MOMA:

                    "'All things considered, there is only Matisse' - Pablo Picasso"
                    "Questioner to Matisse 'Surely you don't put down intelligence?'
                     Matisse: 'Yes. Ireject intellectulity. There is only instinct.' "
