Product story

I have at last found an object for which I've been longing for a whole year. It's a Venetian baroque chair, silver gilt with tinted varnish, like a piece of enamel. You've probably seen something like it. When I found it in an antique shop a few weeks ago, I was bowled over. It's splendid. I'm obsessed with it.
Henri Matisse in a letter to surrealist writer and poet Louis Aragon.

This A6 postcard features the Matisse work Grand Motif: Venetian Chair, coloured pencil on paper, 1943.
