And we cannot finish a week of windows without Matisse, whose windows on the sea in particular are so memorable. Seated Woman, Back Turned to the Open Window 1922 is at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The contrast with the lack of windows in There Were No Windows is heart-rending.

Also the Forum about the book is wise and illuminating.
