Matisse- "The Joy of Life"
Since we have a test Thursday, I think it is benifical if we discuss some of the art Mrs. Quinet showed us. This is Matisse's "Joy of Life"- He is using different colors that weren't normally seen during this time. This painting comes from the Fauvism period, which lasted from 1905 to 1907. Matisse's wide range of colors and interesting concentration made this painting purely his perspective. This painting was excatly what was going through Matisse's mind. The response to this painting was that critics thought Matisse was insane. What else do yall have to say about this painting?
