Harmony in Red.

Name: Harmony in Red.
Artist: Henri Matisse
Location: The Hermitage, Leningrad.
Year: 1908

The red of the walls and tablecloth, with the interweaving blue pattern, is one of Mattise's most unusual color creations, with a history just as fascinating and complex. The canvas began its life as Harmony in Green, and was then transformed to Harmony in Blue. It then was bought by Sergei Shchukin, who honored Matisse's request to work on it one last time; with this masterpiece is the final result.
