Interior with a Violin Case - Description

Partake in the lightheartedness embodying this Fauve painting, Interior with a Violin Case, completed by French artist Henri Matisse in the year 1919. It is an oil painting completed on canvas. Interior with Violin Case is a modern masterpiece for its experimental interpretation of form and beaming color. One can envision the spacious airiness of this room and feel a breeze blowing fresh air through the open curtains overlooking a balcony and what appears to be an ocean scene in the distance. Notice the Matisse standard of yellow walls contrasted by a vibrant red juxtaposition along the right border. The colors are complimentary and do not clash but rather play off of each other in a manner that promotes each shade’s individual beauty. The colors do not tend to blend together through gradation but rather by the artist’s technique of layering and specific placement. Lines adhere to their own principles in this painting, adding a touch of personal character that is indicative of the artist’s style. The violin case sits as it should atop the chair, perfectly fitted to rest across the arm rests. It is open, suggesting that a violinist could be serenading the viewer from an unseen location on the balcony. The open case adds to the whimsical feeling of this fresh painting and acts as an invitation by Matisse to step into his world and overlook the balcony from the perspective of the Interior with a Violin Case.
