Here's an interesting fact about Matisse's masterpiece, "The Red Room (Harmony in Red)" ... Matisse originally painted the walls blue, but he was disatisfied with the final result and decided to paint them red. The painting was commissioned by the famous Russian collector Sergey Shchukin, and was intended to hang in the dining room of his mansion in Moscow. It is now in the permanent collection of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
