Harmony in Yellow, by Henri Matisse. The content of this painting is still life and pattern, with the artist using base colours and interposing black against yellow paint. There is quite a lot of pattern in this depiction, and the emphasis is on the bottle, plate, glass and cup. These are rendered in white, grey and blue and stand out against the highly coloured background.
