This is Matisse, Hardback Book

This is Matisse Hardback

Illustrated by Agnes Decourchelle

Part of the This is... series

Hardback

Description

In the history of twentieth century modernism, Henri Matisse is a calm and unstoppable revolution of creative genius. Trained originally in the French classical manner, he was inspired by the Impressionists and Cezanne to create in a style that brought out the beauty of colour, form and line by reducing them to their essentials.

While considered a leader of the Fauves and an inspiration to most of the great figures in modern art, he wasn't interested in being associated with any school or trend.

A family man who worked 'office hours' in his studio, he defies the image of the artist as enfant terrible or tortured soul. In a career spanning six decades, he produced masterpiece after masterpiece that constantly challenge how we perceive colour and form.
