From the New York City The Museum of Modern Art:
Matisse took Woman on a High Stool (Germaine Raynal) through many changes as he worked, particularly the seated figure. Perhaps the greatest alteration was in color: vivid blue, green, and orange-red areas have been mostly covered with layers of gray. The painting shares its simplified geometric forms, heavy contouring, and austere palette with the work of Paul C├ęzanne and the Cubist paintings Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque made a few years earlier.
