          A Matisse that to me is emblematic of Eliot's life and art:

                            I think your reference here is VERY relevant to Eliot's work.
                            Cf. Pound's Make It New.

                            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.' "

                            Cheers.
