Lounging in The Patterns of Matisse
11 x 14  Matisse Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series

Another Matisse and many more to come. I love Matisse's bold colors and patterns. I thought it would be fun to see if I could do a painting that would make sense in the end with as many patterns as I could.
I think this one turned out really great. I had not idea where it would go when I started it and thought
I did a study on Patterns by Matisse and was amazed at what I found.

So you can guess how I got the title for this paintings.
"Lounging in The Patterns of Matisse."
What a fun painting to add to any collection.
More to come,

Throughout his career Matisse employed his serene and joyous imagery in mediums outside the fine arts -- book illustration, tapestry and rug design, and architectural decoration. From 1944 to the end of his life, he produced decoupes, in which he cut shapes from colored paper and pasted them onto fields of white. These works, which achieve an ultimate blending of Matisse's vibrant color with the energetic flow of his line, are considered by many to be his best. Matisse's supreme accomplishment, which may be seen in all his work, was to liberate color from its traditionally realistic function and to make it the foundation of a decorative art of the highest order.

Henri Matisse  31 December 1869 – 3 November 1954) was a  French Artist, known for his use of color and his fluid and original draftsmanship. He is known primarily as a painter although was also a draftsman and sculptor.  Although he was initially labeled a Fauve  (wild beast), by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of color and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in Modern Art.
