Three Sisters was the product of Henri Matisse’s experiment with multiple-subject portraiture that began in 1916. Matisse’s early interest in exotic fabrics and brightly patterned textiles often emerged in his paintings, evident here as the models pose in costumes ranging from Moroccan dress to modern prints. His characteristically bold color palette also appears in all three portraits.
The images in this notecard set, though originally conceived as a triptych, were divided among different owners until Dr. Albert Barnes reunited them in the Barnes Foundation collection in Pennsylvania, where they are joined by dozens of Matisse paintings created across the length of the artist’s career.
Contains six each of the following notecards:
Three Sisters and the “Rose Marble Table”, 1917
Three Sisters with an African Sculpture, 1917
