The Red Studio - Description

From French artist Henri Matisse comes the Red Studio, a work of oil on canvas measuring one hundred eighty-one by two hundred-nineteen centimeters. This painting was created in 1911. The color red takes the stage in this Fauve classic. The Red Studio is an invitation into the artist’s most personal space, the area where he creates his realities. It is a tremendous gift to his followers, allowing them to see both complete and incomplete works as well as the objects that fill the space around them. Notice how the furniture in the room is void of detail and even depth but is instead cloaked in the same red matter as the floor and walls. Life is shown in objects bearing color. Red Studio has an almost surreal feel to it, a dreamlike quality induced by the omnipresent red blanket and highlighted by a handless clock. Notice the loose drawing style and the way that the leg of the table closest to the viewer bends awkwardly. Visually the eye is drawn to the large amount of space occupying the center of the floor, trapped in place by the surrounding circle of dressers, tables, stools and artwork. This trapping effect places the viewer directly on the stage taken by the artist when creating his work, as if it is the center ring in a great circus of art.
