Moving Matisse's Furniture
Four  Paintings & Related Works

These famous photographs by Héléne Adant (Paris) were taken in Matisse's house, Le Rêve, in the south of France.

Matisse worked through the Second World War and the German occupation of France. Little of this political and social upheaval showed in his paintings. Beginning in 2004 I took images of some of Matisse's furniture, his "comfortable armchair" and put them into different, more agitated contexts.
