This painting is based on artwork by French artist, Henri Matisse. Henri Matisse's mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art.

According to Marisse scholar and former MoMA curator John Elderfield, the landscapes he painted in the summer of 1905 were “wilder, more reckless than any subsequently produced in his career....In the works of that period color speaks for itself with a directness previously unknown in Western painting, and speaks directly too of the emotional response to the natural world that required changing the color of this world the better to render that emotion.”

This is a fun, fluid painting that will take you back to the freedom of creating art as a child!
