Limited Edition of 350
L'Odalisque au Coffret Rouge" (The Odalisque with the Red Box) is a painting by Henri Matisse, created in 1926. The painting depicts a reclining female figure, an odalisque, who is traditionally a harem woman in an orientalist setting. In this painting, the odalisque is depicted with a sumptuous and decorative background, with a deep red box placed next to her on the ground.
The composition is characterized by Matisse's signature use of color, with the red box adding a bold and vibrant contrast to the other colors in the painting. The odalisque is painted with a sensual and relaxed posture, and the curves of her body are emphasized by the fluid, brushstrokes.
"L'Odalisque au Coffret Rouge" is considered one of Matisse's mature works, and it reflects his interest in capturing the essence of a subject through the use of color, line, and form. This painting is part of a series of works that Matisse created of odalisques and is an example of his mastery of the Fauvist style.
