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. This is a fine reproduction of the original painting, presented in a contemporary-style frame with a gold finish.
