Luxe

Ah, luxury! It’s etymological origin sparks emotion: luxia, luxuria, luxus? Lumière, luxure, luxation? To avoid confusion we should choose to concentrate on Matisse’s vision: two paintings, entitled Luxe I and Luxe II, created in Collioure in 1907. Three female nudes on a beach: the first woman is endowed with full breasts similar to the form of the Archétype model, the second woman holding a colourful floral bouquet, and the third and last woman kneels on a veil before the first nude in a rite of mysterious adoration. These two huge canvases, a pair (!) as Matisse was adept at creating, employ various technics to attain a sense of exultation on the canvas. Here is what luxury speaks to us: an evocation of beauty in plural form. 

Nacre

Another name for mother-of-pearl.

Short science lesson: nacre is an organic-inorganic composite material. Hard, translucid and shiny, iridescent and shimmering, nacre is made of fine transparent layers of aragonite secreted via the external epithelium of the mollusc shell.
