About the Artwork

Henri Matisse painted this canvas in his hotel room in Nice, in the South of France, where he spent his winters beginning in 1917. The large window gives the painting a theatrical feel, as drapes open like stage curtains to reveal a single actor. One window is propped open, allowing for a glimpse outside; the small, neatly contained view suggests a landscape painting hanging on a wall.
