Hang a mini masterpiece with this mini print featuring Matisse's 'The Inattentive Reader' 1919. Measures 28 x 35.6cm.
Matisse painted this work during an extended stay in a hotel in Nice in the south of France. Although the woman was probably a professional model, Matisse creates a sense of casual intimacy, and uses details in this anonymous setting to touch on serious themes. The distracted reader assumes the head-in-hand pose traditionally associated with melancholy, while the flowers and mirror are reminders of the transience of life.
