Said to be one of the very first Fauvist works, "Open Window, Collioure" was painted during the summer of 1905 when Matisse worked in the small Mediterranean fishing port of Collioure. The view is full of light, inviting and vibrant. Through the window small boats bob on pink waves under a sky banded with turquoise and pink. This scene, reflected in the glass, melts into rectangles of green, cyclamen, and lilac. The surrounding walls are fuchsia and blue-green, hardly the colors of nature. From the collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., this fine print has been custom-framed in hand-finished wood molding.
