Henri Matisse (31 December 1869 - 3 November 1954) was a French artist, known for his use of
color and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. He was a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but is known primarily as a painter. Matisse is regarded, along with Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three seminal artists of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.
View of Notre-Dame is an oil painting by Henri Matisse from 1914. Along with works such as Woman on a High Stool, it belongs to the "experimental period" of Matisse's oeuvre. Pentimenti reveal that it was originally painted in a more detailed manner before it was radically simplified into a geometric composition.

A golden rectangle is a rectangle whose side lengths are in
the golden ratio, one-to-phi, that is, approximately
1:1.618. A distinctive feature of this shape is that when a
square section is removed, the remainder is another golden
rectangle, that is, with the same proportions as the first.
Square removal can be repeated infinitely, which leads to an
approximation of the golden or Fibonacci spiral.
