About the the The Joy of Life Painting
Henri Matisse did several versions of his Joy of Life painting. In this version, the artist has used bold, flat, contrasting colors to create a work with much impact. His simplified figures with strong outlines are all finding their own peace in their own way, with some dancing, others relaxing, while the couple in the lower right are embracing each other.
