The picture was painted at Matisse's studio in Issy-les-Moulineaux near Paris. In the period 1911-1915 the motif of the aquarium with fish is frequently found in the artist's works which form a kind of suite. He attains perfect harmony of composition, colour and the whole range of sensations produced by contemplating the picture. The work was purchased by Sergei Shchukin in Paris 1912 from Matisse's studio and formed part of the Pink Drawing Room ensemble in the collector's house.

Goldfish were introduced to Europe from East Asia in the 17th century. From around 1912, goldfish became a recurring subject in the work of Henri Matisse. They appear in no less than nine of his paintings, as well as in his drawings and prints. Goldfish, 1912 belongs to a series that Matisse produced between spring and early summer 1912. However, unlike the others, the focus here centers on the fish themselves.

The goldfish immediately attract our attention due to their color. The bright orange strongly contrasts with the more subtle pinks and greens that surround the fish bowl and the blue-green background. Blue and orange, as well as green and red, are complementary colors and, when placed next to one another, appear even brighter. This technique was used extensively by the Fauves, and is particularly striking in Matisse’s earlier canvas Le Bonheur de vivre. Although he subsequently softened his palette, the bold orange is reminiscent of Matisse’s fauvist years, which continued to influence his use of color throughout his career.
