The article reflects the craftsmanship of artist Henri Matisse and recollects the interview with him when he visited California School of Fine Arts in 1930. It describes Matisse as the iconoclast of 1905 who emerges in full perspective as a craftsman in a very old tradition and there is no department of art which did not benefit from the quickening vitality of his touch. In 1948, Matisse was the only designer of the last 350 years to give evidence, of concern for wool and his tapestry was a textile and not a faked up of an oil painting.
