"Open Window" Henri Matisse

           This is a painting by Henri Matisse called "Open Window". It was completed in 1905 and is an oil on canvas. In the painting we see a view from the interior of a room. Matisse used the method of Impressionist brushwork for the elements of nature such as the potted plants. I chose this painting because I loved the colors and because I thought it was very interesting how he showed many of the brushstrokes.
