Showcasing Henri Matisse’s painting The Red Studio. The imagery of this painting depicts the interior of Matisse’s studio with a display of art objects created
with an array of media, such as bronze sculptures, oil paintings, and plaster casts. The history of media used to create art is the history of various
technologies employed by artists. These technologies have helped artists both to achieve the ends they desire more readily and to discover new modes of
creation and expression. A medium is both the specific material, and the process through which a given work of art is made.
Discuss the decisions an artist contemplates as they choose a medium for an idea or select a medium as their signature method of creating.
