Henri Matisse: Three Sisters Panoramic Boxed Notecards

$16.95 $8.48 Sale

Published with: the Barnes Foundation

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 Three Sisters with Grey Background, 1917

Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) was born into a family of weavers and was trained as a lawyer before turning to art in his twenties. His youthful exposure to textiles helped shape his love of color and texture. Although his early artwork paid homage to influences such as Paul Cezanné and Edward Manet, Matisse was a modernist through and through and spent most of his career experimenting with diverse media, techniques, and styles. He was a draftsman, printmaker, and sculptor but is best known as a painter. Some of his most acclaimed paintings were created in the early 1900s, when he found his place at the leading edge of the Fauvism movement. Matisse is now widely considered to be the supreme colorist of the 20th century.
