This painting by Matisse is entilted The Music...Although it features people, it is still about placement and colour. The form of the painting is just that; placement, colour, tone, balance. It is a picture which tells a story and is rendered with great confidence. It is done with mixed media. I enjoy the pastel look to it and the warmth of the shades. Matisse painted right till the end of his life and was an expert with colour and form.
