In the early 1940s, in war-torn Europe, the publisher Martin Fabiani offered Henri Matisse an extraordinary commission. Matisse was to choose a few of his favourite themes and make a series of drawings.

In a letter to his daughter Matisse commented on the project; For a year I made a very important effort, one of the most important of my life. I developed my drawing and with ease made surprising progress with freely expressed sensibility, a wide variety of sensations but a minimum of means. It was like a breakthrough. The works were sensitively drawn with elegant unshaded line describing simplified forms of female figures and still lifes.
