“Tea” depicts a garden scene in which Matisse’s model Antoinette Arnoud, his daughter Marguerite, and his dog Lili relax at the artist’s residence in the Parisian suburb of Issy-les-Moulineaux. Although Matisse’s use of sunlight evokes the Impressionists’ attraction to painting directly from nature, he focused more on communicating the cool lushness of the scene through adherence to local color.
