Coloring page : Henri Matisse - Odalisque in a yellow Persian dress
Coloring from 'Odalisque a la robe persane jaune' (1937) by Henri Matisse
In this painting, Matisse uses his familiar model, Hélène Galtzine, to depict a figure dressed in a yellow Persian dress, surrounded by the painter's personal objects, creating a dreamlike interior. Inspired by his travels in the Maghreb, Matisse revisited the odalisque motif, inherited from Orientalist nudes, modernizing them and transforming them into archetypes of the modern woman between the wars.
