About this book

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 Cézanne 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.

Reviews all around the world

Matisse's art doesn't really speak to me, however the story of Matisse's life written by author Catherine Ingram is still a delight to read. I just don't know what's with these artists and their interesting life. The illustrations provided by Agnes Decourchelle are wonderful also, complementing the text perfectly.
