Interior with a Violin

Interior with a Violin - Description

French Fauvist Henry Matisse completed Interior with a Violin in the year 1918. A sharp contrast to the whimsical 1919 painting Interior with a Violin Case that would soon follow by Matisse, this painting offers a much different interpretation of a room cloaked in shadow rather than indicative of bright colors and an open balcony. The emotion that is transmitted through Matisse’s use of darker colors deftly connotes the feeling of an instrument put to rest. It is the feeling of the possibility for music to someday fill the room again, as highlighted by the small amount of sunlight peeking through the window. Just as the room will be filled again by light once the other shutter is opened, the artist has created a feeling of anticipation for someone to come along and pick up the instrument, thereby flooding the somewhat drably color room with sound. Matisse has captured potential energy in Interior with a Violin and in turn created a masterpiece of a musician’s tool laid to rest. There is beauty existing in a canvas normally painted bright by this artist that now is cast in darkness. Notice the mass of royal blue occupying the violin case’s interior and the contrast that it has against the white object behind it. Interior with a Violin is dominated by course brushstrokes and minimal detail and through this technique creates a world of possibility for the imagination
