Matisse's line drawings enabled him to channel his creative vision with more spontaneity than in his painting. Drawing allowed for an immediate and intuitive execution of a compositional idea, without having to negotiate the placement of color. By the late 1930s the artist increasingly turned towards draftsmanship, believing that the act of painting could not offer a comparable sense of creative release. Matisse's focus on line as a means of expression during these years lead to the development of his cut-outs—a medium that ultimately resolved the conflict between drawing and color.

Completed at his studio in Nice, Matisse's beautiful rendering of his nude model dates from 1937. The picture is sensual example of Matisse's drawings of nudes, and displays the artist's singular ability to capture his model in a natural, casual pose, while at the same time depicting her with elegance and grace. The model in the present work contorts her body in a highly sculptural pose, allowing Matisse to render her limbs at various angles and the beautiful curvature of her bare torso.
