Public domain US ← → Luxe, calme et volupté Henri Matisse Date: 1904 - 1905 Style: Pointillism Genre: genre painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 118 x 98 cm Location: Georges Pompidou Center, Paris, France References: www.theartstory.org The title of this painting is taken from the refrain of Charles Baudelaire's poem, Invitation to a Voyage (1857), in which a man invites his lover to travel with him to paradise. The landscape is likely based on the view from Paul Signac's house in Saint-Tropez, where Matisse was vacationing. Most of the women are nude (in the manner of a traditional classical idyll), but one woman - thought to represent the painter's wife - wears contemporary dress. This is Matisse's only major painting in the Neo-Impressionist mode, and its technique was inspired by the Pointillism of Paul Signac and Georges Seurat. He differs from the approach of those painters, however, in the way in which he outlines figures to give them emphasis.
