Henri Matisse, photographed by Edward Steichen for Vanity Fair, January 1915.

There was more quarreling about Matisse, shown here at work in Paris, than about any other painter of the epoch. His Nude with the Blue Leg, shown at the International Exhibition of 1913, had “surprised New York, disgusted Chicago, and horrified Boston.”
—Diana Edkins Richardson, 1982
