Congrats, gentles! You were the first to reblog with the correct answer. The Matisse books are all yours.
Le Chant du Rossignol (The Song of the Nightingale) was a “choreographic poem” performed by the Ballet Russes with music by Stravinsky and costumes by Matisse. You can see the costume in the question online here at the National Gallery of Australia’s website.
