Description of the painting by Henri Matisse “Family Portrait”


This picture of the artist differs from the rest in that Matisse never used in his work an image of everyday life and the interior. In the picture, one can observe how family members of the artist are busy with their household chores. For example, the wife is depicted in embroidery, the sons of Henri Matisse enthusiastically play chess.

Of particular interest is the daughter of Marguerite. If you look at the picture, you can see that the proportions in it are violated, probably the artist thus tried to show the usual situation without unnecessary embellishment and formalities. The picture is perceived by the viewer at ease and easily, thanks to the reigning atmosphere on the canvas. Matisse uses a very unusual technique, avoiding small details, he is able to show the viewer a holistic picture and give pleasure to every person who looks at this masterpiece.

Using rich and beautiful shades of colors, the artist created a whole composition of interest and peculiarity. The handwriting and drawing technique of this artist is very unusual and striking - Henri Matisse does not use the complex technique of combining shadow and light, the figures have more saturated colors that are designed to give mood to his viewer. The objects that are depicted in the picture are unclear and fuzzy, they do not need clarity, it is important for the artist to convey a holistic picture that differs from others in its softness and ease. In order to complete the picture and draw the viewer's attention to the center of the picture, the artist uses a combination of white and black.

The painting “Family Portrait” is a real masterpiece, distinguished by its technique and an unusual combination of bright colors. The artist showed that even on an ordinary day, in the family circle you can enjoy the evening and demonstrated this in his picture.
