Henri Matisse, “The Dance”, 1910
It is an oil canvas painting with size (L x W): 260 x 389cm (102.36″ x 153.15″). It is painted in 1910 and now it is exposed is in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. The painting represents 5 people male and female, dancing naked over mountains in the sky, which makes them look like giants. The first version was painted in 1909 and it is now in MoMA in New York.

I really like Henri Matisse´s work, and The Dance has a special place in my heart beacause of my uncle, he is a great artist too and when he went to MoMa he brought a copy of the artwork in the 90s. The naturalness of this image always enchanted me…
