This new print edition Notes of a Painter (Black - Red - Blue - Green) is made of a fragment from a text by Henri Matisse on painting :

(...) What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter, an art which could be for every mental worker, for the businessman as welle as the man of letters, for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.) (...)

The fragment of the book page then again printed in the same 4 colors previously used in the beach chair edition.
