Artist Jay Rolfe is still reading Hilary Spurling's bio of Matisse titled Matisse The Master. So today's photo will be a Matisse painting, this one from the Cone Collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art. The Cone sisters amassed 500 paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Matisse and eventually gave them to their hometown museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art. The photo of the day by Henri Matisse painted in 1937 is "Purple Robe And Anemones." The model is his longtime assistant Lydia Delectorskaya.
That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his Hyper Representational 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at http://www.3dssc.com/.
