Matisse took a series of 22 photographs documenting his painting in various stages before making significant changes. This video shows the evolution of his painting, Large Reclining Nude.

Using the visual elements and principles of design, describe the ways the composition changes during his process? Do you respond more to the finished work or the earlier stages? Why or why not? Be sure and include any references cited. Your answers should be in paragraph format and a minimum of 250 words. Matisse-The Large Reclining Nude Studies from dale andrews on Vimeo.
