SBA- The Solicitors’ Charity have just published a blog a while back but it looks like it’s been lost in a website revamp.

The post centred around the idea of ‘prehab’. …

So what’s this about?

Well I suppose I could begin at 8 o’clock and talk about Matisse.

At the Cut Outs exhibition at the Tate a few months ago in the first room was an experimental picture. Within the frame Matisse rearranged his cut outs to balance them. He took the component parts and set them in a kind of artistic order.
