About Jeannette III

The artwork “Jeannette III,” created by Henri Matisse between 1910 and 1913, is a bronze sculpture emblematic of the Expressionism movement. This piece forms part of the series “Five busts of Jeanne Vaderin,” and it presently resides in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in Los Angeles, California, United States. As a genre, it aligns with sculpture, offering a three-dimensional representation of the subject.

The artwork portrays a female bust with distinctive traits that reflect Matisse’s style within the Expressionist movement. The bronze material gives the sculpture a strong, enduring presence, while its surface exhibits a textural quality that captures and manipulates light. The figure’s facial features are rendered with a degree of abstraction, typical of Expressionism, where emotional experience takes precedence over realistic representation. The overall form of the bust showcases a fluid, organic quality, with contours that suggest motion and life despite the solidity of the medium.
