About the Artwork

Matisse set this portrait of his wife, daughter, and two sons in the living room of the family home in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France. Music played an important role in the Matisse household; the artist himself was an accomplished violinist. Perhaps the violin resting in the foreground of this family portrait is Matisse's way of including himself in the picture.
