The Egyptian Curtain.

Name: The Egyptian Curtain.
Artist: Henri Matisse
Location: Private collectiom
Year: 1948

"Matisse painted very often using black, but not at all as a colour of darkness black was like any other colour for Matisse, something to be used in a play of highlighted contrasts. For Matisse, color never had any symbolic sense. You could never say, you know, "white is purity, black is death, red is blood." Absolutely not." (Yve-Alain Bois)
