Red Interior Still Life on a Blue Table - Description

Red Interior Still Life on a Blue Table was painted by French modernist Henri Matisse. The painting is a work of oil on canvas and was completed in 1947. Though the painting was completed forty two years after Matisse’s Fauve explosion in France, the painting still embodies the modern philosophy and bright pallet endorsed by the artist. This painting is an excellent example of Matisse’s mastery of color and signature inclusion of a vibrant, dominating red to drive an emotional charge into his viewers.. In Red Interior Still Life on a Blue Table Matisse depicts a glass vase on a blue table in front of an open door. The exterior of the door matches the walls and floor of the interior before giving way to a world of green, black and yellow. The yellow here compliments the tone of the door as well as the circle in the upper left region of the painting which appears to be a portrait hanging on the wall. Rather than blending the flowers into the background as is common in many of Matisse’s works, the artist opted to create a sharp contrast in Red Interior Still Life on a Blue Table between the tones of yellow, blue, green and white prevalent on the floral arrangement. The effect is a “popping” sensation that draws the eye to the flowers first and to the door second. On the table sits a plate of tomatoes that match the electric red of the interior and balances the dominating color against a tabletop of sky blue.
