Lorette with Turban - Description

Henri Matisse often used models for his work. Both his wife and his daughter posed for some of his most daring paintings. But Matisses partnership with the professional Italian model Laurette would allow him to produce some of the most iconic portraits of his career. Laurette was known as an exhibitionist, and was not afraid to pose dress up and play a role for the painter during her sessions. In Lorette with Turban, Yellow Jacket, the model dons an exotic white turban, covering her stylishly bobbed black hair. She wears a brightly colored robe, festooned with brown buttons. The model looks at the viewer directly, with wide eyes and tightly pursed lips. Lorette with Turban, Yellow Jacket has a slightly restrained palette for Matisse, containing yellows, reds and blacks only. However, contrast is evident in the background. To the left of the canvas, the scene is in bright, glowing yellow. However, the right of the canvas is in shadow, deepening to black. This shadowing is not evident on the model herself, which makes it all the more startling. Matisse would go on to paint many more portraits of Laurette over the following year, but Lorette with Turban, Yellow Jacket would remain one of his most intimate and colorful creations.
