Directly related to his memories of Tahiti, Matisse described the three lagoon works in Jazz to his nurse, Lydia Delectorskaya: “simply the shimmering colours of the tropics, with animals or undulating forms, evocations of calm waters”. This image has robust shapes in blue, red, black and green. Maquette for Plate XIX from the illustrated book, Jazz.
