Henri Matisse's "The Snail"

I chose "The Snail" because it might seem to be very simplistic to some people but very complex to others. Matisse uses Gouache on paper, cut and pasted on paper mounted on canvas to create the image. At first I didn't see a snail, but when I looked at it a little more I could make out the shell, and body of the snail in the picture. He uses a great deal of color and shapes to create the image. I like this very much because anyone can interpret it differently, but he was inspired by a snail's shell.
