Bathers with a Turtle

Date: 1907–8

Artist: Henri Matisse, French, 1869–1954

Medium: oil on canvas
Dimensions:
71 1/2 x 87 in. (181.6 x 221 cm)
Credit Line: Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Pulitzer Jr.
Object Number: 24:1964
Place made:France, Ile-de-France, Ville de Paris, Paris, Couvant des Oiseaux, 56 rue de Sèvres
Classification: PAINTINGS
Current Location:On View, Gallery 215
Notes:Three nude women on a featureless green beach congregate awkwardly around a brown turtle. The bathers' attentions, both to the diminutive creature on the ground and to each other, are compromised by their self-absorbed postures and lack of eye contact.

Simple and abstract, this monumental composition is a radical reworking of Three Bathers, a smaller painting that Matisse completed during the previous year. The details present in the earlier work-the sailboats, the bathers' towels, and the radiant hues of Mediterranean summer- have been replaced by three strips of muted color, which represent land, water, and sky.

Notes:
[1] This painting was purchased by Karl Ernst Osthaus for the Folkwang Museum in Spring, 1908, according to letters between Pierre Matisse and Osthaus. These letters were formerly in the Folkwang Museum, Essen and are now in private hands [Stein, Laurie. "The History and Reception of Matisse's Bathers with Turtle in Germany, 1908-1939." "Henri Matisse Bathers with a Turtle." St. Louis: The Saint Louis Art Museum, 1998].

[2] After Osthaus's death in 1921, the Folkwang Museum was moved from Hagen to its current location in Essen.

[3] This is documented in the exhibition catalog "Degenerate Art" [Baron, Stephanie, ed. "'Degenerate Art': The Fate of the Avant-garde in Nazi Germany." Los Angeles, CA: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1991].

[4] Pierre Matisse, the artist's son, was also a dealer who acted as an agent for the Pulitzers, purchasing the work for them at the Lucerne auction (see note [3]). An annotated copy of the catalogue includes "Pulitzer" after the entry for this painting [copy, SLAM document files]. Also, per information from Galerie Fischer, Lucerne [Stein, 1998].

[5] Minutes of the Administrative Board of Control and Associate Members of the Board of Control of the City Art Museum, December 9, 1964.
