Matisse Stories

by A.S. Byatt

Matisse Stories Synopsis

In this elegant set of stories, three modern women are touched in different ways by the paintings of Henri Matisse. In "e;Medusa's Ankles,"e; a distinguished translator visits a hair salon hoping to regain a hint of her youthful looks. Hung on the wall before her is one of Matisse's iconic portraits. In "e;Art Works,"e; the three inhabitants of one household-a generous wife, her petulant husband, and their regal housekeeper-make very different artists. And in "e;The Chinese Lobster,"e; a self-tortured, anorexic art student confronts the smug opulence of Matisse's nudes while pondering suicide.
