The colours of Matisse.
This is a painting that Henri Matisse made in 1947 and it’s called Red Interior, Still Life on a Blue Table.
One of my most favourite paintings ever — it is so very beautiful, so soothing to my soul. Very few painters know how to bring colours to life like Matisse does. Colours and shapes of things. He can make a table look like it’s a living thing, as if it’s not a table but a pet in your house.
In his own words:
“I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me.”
