Harmony in Red

  Buy now from barewalls.com1908: The Hermitage at St. Petersburg

The bright red foreground and background flatten the space in this view of a table being cleared after dinner. The floral pattern of the tablecloth continues onto the wallpaper, and has equal importance with the figure, the objects on the table, and the view out the window. Originally the dominant colour in the painting was mostly green, then blue, and finally red, as Matisse went through successive stages of repainting.
