Two Arms by Mattise




In a painting by Matisse he paints the arms of one woman, with her hand pressed against her cheek, with anatomical accuracy. The other arm, of a woman sitting next to her, is elongated, stretched out with an expressive gesture around her knees. The faces in this painting are very stylized, almost childlike, with more attention going to the colorful clothing and background.
