French artist Henri Matisse gradually turned away from traditional drawing and painting to adopt a radical but simple approach to art. In How the Snail Found Its Colours, the story of a snail's search for the right colour for its shell helps us understand how Matisse refined his technique and how the selection of particular colours and shapes was the key to his art.
