An image of one of many beautiful paintings & sketches seen at the Art Institute of Chicago's Matisse exhibit. This painting is called Blue Nude (Souvenir of Biskra) and was painted by Henri Mattisse in 1907.
If you're in or near Chicago and love art, go see the exhibit if you haven't already.
Not only are there some fabulous paintings & sculptures on display, but also some great drawings that seemed to be overlooked, judging by the attention paid to them by the visitors I shared the viewing galleries with.
For those who can't make it to Chicago for the exhibit, you may be interested to catch a glimpse of the work on display in this video overview of Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-1917.
