Icare (Icarus)

by Henri Matisse


Icare was created as another tribute to Henri Matisse.  The strong lines of this piece were an obsession of Matisse, who created this as part of a series called “Jazz” he created late in his life. 

It measures approximately 2.5 by 4 feet, and is trimmed with an ebony frame.  Completed in August 2010.
