Henri Matisse

At the top of my blog is a picture of an old car with the steering wheel on the "wrong" side. It is an oil painting by Henri Matisse. I actually got to see it at the Cleveland Art Museum yesterday. In fact, I probably downloaded the photo from one of their brochures last fall. Cool! Its title is "The Windshield, On the Road to Villacoublay," dated 1917. Henri was riding in the backseat and decided to paint what he saw from the car.
