I was reading about Matisse's Models and came up with this
idea. In this painting I did my take on many of his models.
I made many color and patten changes and changed the facial
features. The flowers, vases, checkerboard, table, furniture 
and wall patterns are inspired by different Matisse paintings.
 
I have such an attraction for Matisse. He was so passionate about
his work. He used such bold colors and mixed patterns with
 patterns and painted table tops facing the viewer as it was more
 important for the elements on the table to be painted.
He had a passion for painting woman in sheer tops and harem
pants. Maybe he wished for a harem...or maybe he had one!
He was hard to model for and went through many,
many models. See a great article I have included below
from the Smithsonian about Matisse and his models.
I thought it would be great to give Henri his Harem lying 
around sipping wine while Henri peeps in.

Enjoy " Henri's Harem"
