Fifth hint

I offered four hints that could help to understand the meaning of Matisse’s Snail from Tate Modern in my last post.

Now, the fifth hint.

Count the coloured blocks.

Yes, there are 11 coloured blocks and one holdall frame in The Snail.

And yes, Matisse embraced religion towards the end of his life.

But I am sure you’ve made the connection already.

It would be grand to hear from you now!
