Beasts of the Sea by Henri Matisse

Today's painting is "Beasts of the Sea" painted in 1950 by Henri Matisse. Henri Matisse was one of the founders of Fauvism. The word Fauvism is french for "wild beasts". It got this name because the paintings had bright and unusual colors. The subjects in the paintings were shown in a simple way, and the colors and patterns were bright and wild.
