Henri Matisse, 1869-1954


Oil on canvas; 260 x 389 cm

This decorative panel was created as a pair to the Dance for Sergey Shchukin's Moscow mansion. Again the artist presented five figures against a landscape background executed in very intensive blue and green, but in this world of wondrous torpor the static and isolated figures are engrossed in their music.
