The Snail (1953)
By Henri Matisse
This Art work was made by an artist called Henri Matisse and is called The Snail.
The Snail, I chose this art work because I thought it was unique, and well presented. It is a collage, which is different because I personally always seem to be attracted to the same style of work consistently, which are paintings that show blending, tone, texture and images of nature, like fruits, flowers etc; whereas with this work there is a range of colours, opposites and they are clashing. The artist has chosen to represent a snail through the use of square like shapes, this shows originality. To be honest I don’t really see the snail however some people do, I think that’s really cool that people can perceive this work in various ways, which is amazing and quite intriguing. He has chosen bright, vibrant colours which attracted my attention which is one of the reasons why I chose this; it also tells us a lot about Henri, it represents his personality. He has presented himself as optimistic, a simple guy, laid back and calm. I’m not the sort of person who enjoys collage experimenting, but I just thought that this work creates a peaceful mood. This work may appear lazy, In 1953 Matisse was severely ill in hospital and was determined to create a piece of art work while admitted there, with the help of his assistant, Henri managed to produce The Snail by instructing him/her where to place the tern shapes of paper which have already been painted by gouache in the specific positions he wanted them to be placed in and ended up with the unique work above.
