Interior in Aubergines - Description

From French Fauvist Henry Matisse painted Interior in Aubergines in the year 1911. This gem, created in gouache on canvas, depicts a still life whose central focus is a teapot. Next to the teapot lies what appears to be eggplant. This is undoubtedly why the artist chose to title this piece Interior in Aubergines. The use of lime green placed next to tones of brown, yellow and violet create a jovial atmosphere that is guaranteed to lighten the mood of whatever room this painting should be placed in. In line with Matisse’s habits, this painting also displays a window scene to the right of the canvas. This inclusion acts as a focal point for the eye to be drawn to as it proceeds from the still life and travels through to the outside. This technique is made possible by the help of the diagonal line separating the patch of green from the brown floor. The exterior is also displayed in bright colors harmonious with those existing inside. Notice the bold display of vertical lines structurally dominating this piece. Lines are used here as borders to trap color and highlight the artist’s technique of balancing color without using a series of gradations. What results is a choppy effect that is elicited even more by the broad, coarse brushstrokes and floral pattern appearing all about the Interior in Aubergines.
