This pattern-like composition is sometimes referred to as The Red Room. An analysis of the scene would initially favour a dining room, with a table spread of glass vessels, flowers and fruit, and a maid arranging a dish of food. However, this article from Every Painter Paints Himself argues that the scene is actually a representation of Matisse’s own artistic studio.
