Love From Matisse

“My models, my human figures, are never like extras in an interior. They are the main theme of my work. I depend absolutely on my model”. – Henri Matisse

I am going so post sooooo much Matisse on this blog it’s not even funny! This man truly makes me proud of my profession. Until his dying day, Matisse worked regularly from models, and he created some of the most distinct and memorable figures known in art. Here’s Henri with one of his many muses:

And here is a beautiful Matisse lithograph, “Nude Model on a Couch”:

Henri, on behalf of artists’ models everywhere, here at Museworthy, we salute you!
