'Le Jardin Retrouvé'
acrylic on canvas 5x5cm (2x2"inch)




I've painted this miniature after Matisse's 'Le Jardin'. This painting was stolen from a Swedisch museum 25 years ago. The painting was recently recovered by an art dealer in Essex who first checked the art loss registers before handling the Matisse.

Must say i'm curious when Matisse painted 'Le Jardin' maybe an early work because it's not painted in his known bright colours.
