Theme and Variation: Matisse
In the center is my slightly altered version of Tiari, created
by Matisse in 1930 after a trip to the South Seas. It is lush and
sensuous with the floral shape reflecting the hair and face of a
woman. On the left, is a bust of his model Henriette Darricarrere.
On the right, is an abstracted version of the piece, exaggerating
the floral and sensuous forms.
