View of Notre-Dame
View of Notre-Dame (French: Une vue de Notre-Dame) is an oil painting by Henri Matisse from 1914.
Along with works such as Woman on a High Stool, it belongs to the "experimental period" of Matisse's oeuvre. Pentimenti reveal that it was originally painted in a more detailed manner before it was radically simplified into a geometric composition.
It was not exhibited until after Matisse's death, but proved a great influence upon later developments in painting.
