Goldfish and Sculpture

Born in a small northern village near the Belgian border, Henri Matisse spent his entire life moving southward toward color and light.

Goldfish and Sculpture was painted by Matisse in 1912 at a time when Impressionism had given way to the revolution of the fauves and cubists.

Matisse began to favor still-life subject and decoratively arrayed interiors early in his student days.

The painting was shown in 1913 at Armory Show New York.

Matisse, whose reputation as leader of the Fauves soon after the turn of the century secured his enduring membership of the artistic avant-garde, continued to produce important and influential work in the years following World War II.
