This book brings together for the first time the rich collection of Matisse's paintings of interiors and windows. The distinguished art historian Shirley Blum analyses more than fifty works, from the early painting Studio Under the Eaves (1901-02) to the great stained glass window at the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence (1947-51). With perceptive text and scores of luscious illustrations, Rooms with a View reveals the key role of the window in Matisse's oeuvre.
