the snail

Henri Matisse
The Snail
Gouache on paper

I like this piece because the arrangement of the colored pieces look like a snail like the title suggests. The colors are eye catching but not distracting from the true genius of the piece. I especially love the different shades of purple, green, and orange that mesh perfectly. Also, the red, blue, and black pieces are a nice contrast against the stark white background.
