House of Henri Matisse, Issy-les-Moulineaux

Maison d'Henri Matisse a Issy-les-Moulineaux, France (1909- ca1929)

The house is surrounded by a large garden with ponds and a greenhouse.  Matisse erected a large pre-fab studio on the grounds (which he brought with him during his travels to ensure a place to work on his often enormous canvasses ).
