Description

This book presents a stunning exploration of the life and works of Henri Matisse, regarded by peers and critics alike as one of the greatest artists of his generation. Henri Matisse (1869-1954) is justifiably regarded as one of the most influential French artists of the 20th century - Pablo Picasso, a life-long friend, considered him his singular rival. Throughout his career, Matisse experimented with many different styles - including Impressionism, near abstraction, sculpture, and cutouts - but throughout, his unique pursuit and celebration of colour remained a constant theme. This superbly illustrated volume brings together a wonderful collection of Matisse's major works from his across his whole career, alongside an insightful and authoritative text that explores his life and legacy.show more

Review Text

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) es, sin duda, el más importante artista francés del siglo XX y uno de los referentes en la historia del arte por su tratamiento del color. Desde el inicio, en su obra quedó clara su oposición a una concepción de la modernidad como violento rechazo del pasado.show more
