Red Harmony (Dessert) canvas by Henri Matisse

Red Harmony (Dessert) - Henri Matisse

One of the most striking, even dazzling paintings of Matisse is the Red Room. It depicts the interior of the room in which the woman sets the table. The compositional structure is completely filled with a whirlwind of pure color, which fills the entire surface of the canvas, even the tablecloth on the table merges with the walls. All interior items are deliberately painted flat. Simplification of the form only emphasizes the way of expressing the ideas of the master, an amazing game of colors and an emphasized ornament of forms create the mood of this work.

Matisse spends three years in the East. At this time, a craving for an image of objectless beauty is awakening in him more and more. Abstraction in his work is a reflection of absolute detachment from the bustle of the real world.

From the point of view of the master, such is the view of the world of the Moroccan or Arab. Matisse, focused on detached beauty, uses the techniques of primitivizing nature and giving the pure color of the main task of influence, the latter master was particularly good. A palette of 3-4 basic colors depicts all the images. So, Dance is written in blue, green and red, On the terrace - in purple, pink, blue and green. The limited color gamut nonetheless aroused and awakens a whole stream of sensations among the audience, leaving no one indifferent.
