Public domain US ← → Woman with a Hat Henri Matisse Original Title: Femme au Chapeau Date: 1905 Style: Fauvism Genre: portrait Media: oil, canvas Location: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), San Francisco, CA, US References: www.theartstory.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Matisse attacked conventional portraiture with this image of his wife. Amelie's pose and dress are typical for the day, but Matisse roughly applied brilliant color across her face, hat, dress, and even the background. This shocked his contemporaries when he sent the picture to the 1905 Salon d'Automne. Leo Stein called it, "the nastiest smear of paint I had ever seen," yet he and Gertrude bought it for the importance they knew it would have to modern painting.
