Henri Matisse Les Betes de la Mer (Beasts of the Sea)

This is a painting done in 1905 by Henri Matisse called Les Betes de la Mer (Beasts of the Sea). In this painting Matisse used symbolic shapes to imply coral, surf, and sea plants and animals. I chose this painting because I loved his use of bright and vibrant colors. I also found it very interesting how he positioned all of he different shapes in order for them to make sense to the viewer.
