Woman Reading at a Dressing Table, late 1919 poster by Henri Matisse
From 1917 onwards Henri Matisse spent most of his winters in Nice in the South of France. He often stayed at the Hôtel Mediterranée, a Rococo-style building that he used as the backdrop for many of his paintings. For this particular work, Matisse has depicted one of his female models reading in front of a balcony with French-style shuttered windows. Matisse loved to paint balconies as they allowed him to include both internal and external space in his paintings.
