The still lifes composed by Henri Matisse in the first decade of the 20th century reveal the artist’s liberation from his Impressionist predecessors. In the two paintings of this folio, it’s evident that Matisse adored the changing light of the Mediterranean, which permeates each scene. He included a plaster figure in Dishes and Melon that recalls a small cupid that Cézanne had used in several late still lifes. But the jabbing application of paint, the splendidly expressive colors, and the presentation of ceramics brought back from a recent trip to Algeria lend both of these canvases a distinctly personal quality.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Dishes and Melon, 1906 / 1907
Blue Still Life, 1907
