A selection of Matisse paintings

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was a prominent French artist whose career spanned from the 1800's into the 20th century. We studied him a lot in Fashion Illustration, due to his expressive line work and his use of shapes.

With that in mind, I thought I'd do a little Sims homage with a small sample of his paintings from various decades. There are NINE paintings in total.

If these paintings look a little dim, it's because I stupidly took the pics during "daytime" and therefore, there wasn't much artificial lighting going on. When properly lighted, they are true to hue. =)
