Henri Matisse drawing the model Zita as odalisque in his third-floor apartment and studio in Nice, c.1928. Matisse arranged an “Oriental” alcove, creating an atmosphere of reverie and exoticism reminiscent of the Moorish interiors he had seen in Morocco. The model’s sculpturesque body, languorously stretching on the couch, exudes sensuality and carnality, enhanced by the warm rosy red color scheme. The mood of “luxe, calme et volupté” is clearly palpable
