Matisse was one of the first 20th century artists to make color a central element of painting — chosen to evoke emotions. "A certain blue penetrates your soul," he wrote. "A certain red affects your blood pressure." He also was familiar with the way that complementary colors, such as red and blue, strengthened each other when they were placed next to each other.
