Description

La Piscine
“The Swimming Pool (La Piscine)” (1952) was inspired by Matisse’s trip to a favorite pool in Cannes on an especially scorching summer day. Upon returning to his Nice home, he announced, “I will make myself my own pool.” After his assistant ringed his burlap-lined dining room in a band of white paper (the artist was in a wheelchair by this time), Matisse dissected paper painted blue into the fragmented silhouettes of swimmers, divers, and stars. The figures were pinned onto the wall until his death in 1954.
