Matisse – Rooms With A View

October 8, 2011

Seated Woman, Back Turned to the Open Window, 1922

Some images from a wonderful book I found in the library – Henri Matisse: Rooms With A View by Shirley Neilsen Blum, published 2010 by Thames & Hudson.There are some beautiful masterpieces in this book that I had never seen before. The reproductions are excellent. What a great artist Matisse was; his style is deceptively simple, the composition and use of colour are superb.

Vase of Flowers, 1924

Studio Interior, 1903-04

Woman Before an Aquarium, 1921-23

Interior with a Goldfish Bowl, 1914

The Studio, Quai Saint-Michel, 1916-17
