Happy birthday Henri Matisse! The model for this composition was Lydia Delectorskaya, a beautiful young Russian émigré who worked closely with Henri Matisse (1869-1954) during the last twenty years of his life. Delectorskaya designed the dress shown here after Matisse purchased the sumptuous violet-blue fabric in Paris. What will you wear this New Year’s Eve?
