"Les Betes de la Mer"


I enjoy this painting because I really appreciate the simplicity of it, yet it is still intriguing. Matisse uses symbolic shapes to imply coral, surf, sea plants and animals. The colors are very enticing and portray a vibrant environment. These types of collages were done when Matisse was in his old age and lost his ability to continue painting. I think that it is amazing how he created such beautiful works of art.
