Drawing by Henri Matisse

If I take a sheet of paper of given dimensions I will jot down a drawing which will have necessary relation to its format…And if I had to repeat it on a sheet of the same shape but ten times larger I would not limit myself to enlarging it: a drawing must have a power of expansion which can bring to life the shape which surrounds it.
