The face is indeed masklike, yet expressive, conveying an individual personality,
introspective and mysterious, through an extreme economy of means. The
energetic gesture that, in one swoop, describes the oval of the face amazes us
with its perfection. The work clearly relates to the bold black-and-white drawings
of an exquisite group depicting performing acrobats (also of 1952) as well as to
the late gouaches découpées, excellently documented in a photograph of
Matisse's studio ...

“To a Creole Lady,” Charles Baudelaire, Les Fleurs du mal Nice was a
cosmopolitan city in the mid—twentieth century, and Matisse was rarely at a loss
for girls from varied ethnic backgrounds eager to pose for him in his H6tel Régina
studio. One frequent visitor to Matisse's studio called the endless parade “the
models' ballet”: an English girl with “changing eyes,” a mysterious Turkish woman
, a fourteen—year—old Russian girl, a gracious and charming Congolese model,
and a ...

Becoming a pupil and friend of Matisse, he has an intimate view of Matisse's aims
at this time and recounts many amusing and telling anecdotes about Matisse and
the Steins (of whom he most admires Leo and Sarah), about Matisse's studio,
and about Matisse's first exhibition in and trip to Germany. Matisse's observations
on "modern Germany" betray the Frenchman's amused distaste for its infatuation
with technology, coupled with a certain crudeness of custom. Interestingly ...

After creating three works focusing on the motif of lemons,2 he placed his still
lifes within the broader framework of the studio and also adopted the frontal,
outlined motifs of his paintings from 1940, especially Still Life with Magnolia (cat.
56). Termed “masterpieces illustrating a new fauvism” by Pierre Schneider,3 the
series of Vence interiors (1946—48) began with the two small paintings
discussed here, which hung side by side in Matisse 's studio (fig. 89). Although

consecration. Copying his works was now routine procedure in French art
schools (casts of his Jaguar—and of Pierre Puget's flayed man which Matisse

Matisse and the man at the next easel, who was an out-of-work sculptor, cooked
up a moneymaking scheme to persuade the state to fund a statue of some
