Matisse's portrait by Derain and Banfield
Derain started working with Matisse in 1904 and following the master his palette became more vivid. The light of Collioure, south of France, has also affected the painter but his design is still schematic. In 1905 he painted Matisse's portrait which was turned into a stained-glass in 1993 by Tony Banfield. It is amazing how Banfield reproduces the same colors of Derain's painting. It must be interesting to see how the colors of the glasses change according to the light. during the day.
