This boxed note card set features five works by Henri Matisse, including Open Window, Collioure (1905) from the National Gallery of Art collection. A small but explosive work, Open Window is an icon of early modernism, celebrated as one of the most important early paintings of the fauve school. Fauvist paintings are distinguished by a startling palette of saturated, unmixed colors and broad brushstrokes. The effect is one of spontaneity, although the works reveal a calculated assimilation of techniques from post-impressionism and neo-impressionism. Open Window represents the very inception of the new manner in Matisse's art.
