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 shows pink, white black and green frond-like shapes. Maquette for Plate XVII from the illustrated book, Jazz.
