"The Woman With the Hat"
Oil on Canvas
This painting is thought to be a picture of Henri Matisse's wife, Amelia. I choose this piece because I enjoy the use of non-naturlistic colors that when used, still convey the woman's character or emotion. The piece almost looks unfinished which is another quality that I find surprisingly pleasing to the eye. When I take a quick look at this painting, it almost looks like I'm looking through a mosaic glass window to see the person on the other side. I hope that Mrs. Matisse enjoyed this painting as well.
