while reading in an art book i have (“Pictures Of Nothing: Abstract Art Since Pollock” by Kirk Varnedoe) i came across a painting by Matisse that i had never seen. it reminded me so much of a collage – even though it was a painting of an interior – that i wanted to share it. it is “Interior with Eggplants” or “Intérieur aux aubergines”. the fact that all the objects shown are placed on a strong pattern that is totally flat, and does not differentiate the floor from the walls, is very much like “collage space”. i hope you enjoy seeing it!
