Annotation: Poissons Rouge et Sculpture is one of four paintings by Matisse that contained a goldfish theme. This theme may signify Matisse’s travels to Morocco and contribute to the belief that Matisse was moving away from Fauvism. This painting by Henri Matisse was exhibited at the 1913 Armory Show in New York, a show which was considered an invasion of modern art on America and later moved to Chicago. In fact, the Chicago's Art Student's League chose Matisse’s Goldfish and Sculpture as one of the most appalling paintings in the exhibition.
Year: 1912
