Lithe and playful, these young women embody the spirited tempo suggested by the work's title, Scherzo. Friedrich painted this scene as part of a series of five canvases in which nude figures evoke different musical rhythms. The artist was a founder and active member of the pioneering Secession artists' circle, along with Gustav Klimt.
Matisse insisted that illustrating a text was by no means an attempt to "complete" a poem. If a poet's work required this, the poet's efforts would, according to Matisse, have been deficient. Instead, Matisse thought that painter and poet could work in parallel (even if they did not strictly work together), the picture being a "plastic equivalent" of the poem...the visual artist must not adhere too strictly to the written text, and should, instead, work freely to express his own sensibilities.

A one-year subscription to The Wax Paper and a small drawing was put up for auction to benefit the Stem from Dance program. They tackle key barriers by delivering a one-of-a-kind program weaving together dance and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to uncover the awesomeness of STEM and change the face of the next generation of scientists, engineers, and techies.
