North Haven Gardens. “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Henri Matisse.
In 1917, Matisse moved to Nice in Southern France where he emphasized flattened forms and patterns. Created during this period in 1919, the work features the multi-colored blooms of the marguerite daisy, whose beautiful flowers no doubt reminded him of his daughter of the same name, who was often a subject. A great piece to learn more about color theory and contrast, his work during this time garnered him critical acclaim in the classical tradition of French painting.
