On March 2nd, Miley Cyrus added yet another tattoo to her collection. Since breaking things off with her husband, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus has been on a total tattoo spree. In the past few months, Cyrus has collected a number of pieces from artists around the globe, such as Dr. Woo and Winterstone. And for her latest piece, Cyrus went to Los Angeles artist Nico Bassill, who has also tattooed her beau Cody Simpson.

Cyrus's new tattoo is a line drawing of a naked woman, which is based on a piece by Henri Matisse. The date Matisse created the drawing is unknown, however "Nude with Fruits," was sold to auction in 1994. Matisse was a French painter who was born in 1869 and became one of the most prolific artists of the 20th century. He's best known for leading the fauvism movement, a Neo-impressionistic style that began during the early 20th century. Matisse developed his career in Paris, but later moved and lived the rest of his life in Nice, where he died in 1954 at the age of 84.

He's best known for his "La Danse," painting, which he crafted in 1910, which was a significant time in Matisse's career and one of the big turning points in the modern painting movement. It was created at the request of Russian businessman and art collector Sergei Shchukin and is currently located at The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The primarily painting, Dance (I), was created by Matisse in 1909 and donated by Nelson A. Rockefeller to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York City.
