This is a fine-art print of "Still Life with Sleeping Woman" (1940), an oil painting by Henri Matisse. The original is in the collection of The National Museum of Art in Washington, DC. One of the most influential figures of modern art, Matisse was a virtuoso of multiple media and styles. He was the principal founder of Fauvism and throughout his career used bold, expressive color that often gives his works a rich surface design. He was also a masterful draftsman, with enchantingly fluid, confident lines. Educated and trained in Paris, Matisse spent most of his life in the South of France.
