Matisse à la fondation Barnes



Henri Matisse. The Dance
Summer 1932 - April 1933. Oil on canvas - Main Room

« It was not until February 22, 1932, after a meeting with Barnes in Paris,
that Matisse realized that the dimensions were incorrect:
in his design the pendentives were half their actual width, approximately half a meter instead of one meter wide.

All of the drawings and color studies up to this point were now set aside; Matisse began again »

Study for the Dance Mural, between the end of September 1931 and February 1932.
