Odalisque in red shalvarah by Henri Matisse

In the center of the picture – a young woman in a white blouse and bright red scarves lazily sat on a bright striped mattress in a harem room. Throwing one hand behind her head, she dreams of something, waiting for her master. Her room with bright colorful wallpaper looks like a multi-colored casket, which has everything for a carefree life, for joy.

The room is decorated with bouquets of flowers, on the table are fruit, wine in a copper jug. But for some reason, the expression on the face of a young odalisque does not express happiness, perhaps she dreams of a completely different life – about a simple, loving husband, children, where would she be the same mistress? But the big sadness on her face is also not visible – most likely, she long ago came to terms with her fate and dreams of idleness?
