For a short period during the 1920's Matisse was preoccupied with a series of works depicting "Odalisques" who were ladies of the Harem in Arab lands whom the artist had seen on a trip to Morocco and this Hindu theme is a branch of these studies. There are a number of paintings made on this subject with bright dramatic colours showing the backgrounds often associated with Islamic art. The lithographs Matisse made during this period are very diverse in style and background also - all made with great care and precision.
