The Dessert: Harmony in Red is a painting by French artist Henri Matisse, from 1908. It is considered by some critics to be Matisse's masterpiece. This Fauvist painting follows the example set by Impressionism with the overall lack of a central focal point.
The painting was commissioned as "Harmony in Blue," but Matisse was dissatisfied with the result, and so he painted it over with his preferred red.
