Product Description
Henri Matisse Notecard Folio
“I could do a portrait likeness of you in half an hour, as well as the next man. That’s not what I’m doing. It doesn’t interest me.” Henri Matisse (French, 18691954), a modernist through and through, rejected the idea of an objective work of art. Sitters who came to him expecting a photographic likeness were doomed to disappointment. “A portrait is a feud,” the painter liked to say.

The two paintings reproduced for this folio, Femme au chapeau and La fille aux yeux verts, belong to that remarkable moment when Matisse first allowed color to trump every other aspect of his paintings. The first made him a Fauve; the second started him along a road to the exotic locales that incubated some of his most charming work. What we see today, long after the fuss such paintings inspired has died down, is arrangements of color, some realistic, others purely the product of the artist’s inner vision.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
La fille aux yeux verts (The Girl with Green Eyes), 1908
Femme au chapeau (Woman with the Hat), 1905
