In the footsteps of Matisse...

“I have been in Vence for the last month and a half- everything here is wonderful. It all seems a world away from Nice, this great journey that I travelled in less than an hour, is right in the middle of all my memories of Tahiti.”

“As I walked past my house this morning and saw all the young girls, women and men cycling by towards the market, I thought I was in Tahiti at market time. When the breeze brings me the scent of wood or burnt leaves, I can smell the West Indian hardwood.”
