"The Woman With the Hat" 
Henri Matisse
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.
