About

This beautifully complex view out a window onto a ship-filled harbor was Matisse’s first Fauvist work. The intense blocks of colors appear to be haphazardly placed, as if by wild beasts from which the movement got its name. But there is a logic and balance in the composition. The colors ‘function in complementary pairs—orange-red masts over blue hulls, red blossoms amid green leaves on the wall, opposing reflections of turquoise and pink. Complements such as these become more intense when seen next to each other.’ The colors were not placed to record a true to life recording of the surroundings, but rather to create a visually stimulating image. This sentiment is captured in a quote from Matisse ‘When I put a green, it is not grass. When I put a blue, it is not the sky.’

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
