Rêver à trois aubergines... | Writings
An essential text to discover how much Intérieur aux aubergines is a key to understand the revolutionary side of the painter's work.
Of all the works by Matisse which are still in France, Intérieur aux aubergines is without doubt one of the most important. It was in the autumn of 1911 that the artist painted the interior of his studio, with its view of the mountain at Collioure. It is a dazzling painting of unbelievable modernity.
Dominique Fourcade, poet of sensitivity and conaisseur of the work, tells the unusual story of this painting, bought by the Steins, then bought back by the artist to donate to the Musée de Grenoble.
