Louisiana poster with the work, Red Interior with Arrangement (1947), by the French artist, Henri Matisse (1869-1954). The poster is one of three posters that were printed in connection with the museum's major exhibition with Matisse in 1985. All three posters are today part of our special selection of Louisiana poster classics.

In the work Red interior with arrangement from 1947, Matisse has used few but strong colours. He believed that using too many shades of the same color would risk losing the color completely.

Henri Matisse is especially famous for his use of color and form in painting. In 1890—after a long hospital stay—he really tried his hand at painting and subsequently moved to Paris.

Here, impressionism influenced him for a period, but in 1905 he was at the forefront of a number of younger French artists, and developed the art direction Fauvism, which is characterized, among other things, by strong, pure colors.

Although Henri Matisse is best known to many for his paintings, he also worked with sculpture, graphic prints and, in the last four years of his life, with paper cut-outs and collages.

Matisse is one of the most influential artists of the 1900s and is today considered one of the shapers of modern art.
