Sanyu, Weston, Matisse, Picasso and the Muze

Sanyu (1901-1966)

Edward Weston (1886-1958)

Henri Matisse (1869-1954)

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

A few posts back I met chinese-french painter (and printmaker) Sanyu later realizing how much his paintings resemble the master pieces created by photographer Edward Weston and painters Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. So, today commenting on my own previous posting and just for the record: 

I have no idea who modelled for Sanyu but the other artists favored their muzes. Come to think of it: all great creative men had muzes. Was the muze attracted by their vitality and creativeness or were they source of it ?  Either way you should find your muze. Or let your muze find you !

By the way: Weston had Tina Modotti (1896-1942), Matisse Lydia Delectorskaya (1910-1998) and Picasso Dora Maar (1907-1997) and the list is much, much longer ....................................
