The Embroidered Dark Blouse [Woman in Red Chair], 1936

The woman dominates the golden background. Her simplified and broad form is typical of Matisse’s paintings, as are the broad and expressive brushstrokes. The blank black eyes and dark dress create and ominous and haunting tone to the painting.
