Why We Love This

A wonderful illustration by Matisse, created to tell the story of a lovesick Portuguese nun who wrote letters to a French marquis. Matisse drew nearly a hundred illustrations of flowers and fruit to accompany this tale. "Lettres d'une religieuse portugaise" was published in Paris in 1946 and became popular romantic literature. This is a fine giclée reproduction of the original lithograph, presented in a custom, hand-molded frame.
One of the most influential figures of modern art, Henri 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.
