NEW! This is Matisse

In the history of 20th-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 Cézanne to create in a style that brought out the beauty of color, 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, Matisse wasn't particularly interested in being associated with any particular school or trend. A family man who worked "office hours" in his studio, he defies the image of the artist as a tortured soul.

In a career spanning six decades, he produced masterpiece after masterpiece that constantly challenge how we perceive color and form.

This is Matisse provides a clear, accessible introduction to this famous artist. This richly illustrated volume incorporates original drawings and the works of Matisse with authoritative text to engage and educate readers.
