Henri Matisse (French)
Born 1869, in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, France — Died 1954, in Nice, France
Henri Matisse is widely regarded as the greatest colorist of the twentieth century. He sought to use color as the foundation for expressive, decorative, and often monumental paintings. As he once controversially wrote, he sought to create an art that would be a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair. Still life and the nude remained favorite subjects throughout his career. North Africa was also an important inspiration. Towards the end of his life, he made an important contribution to collage with a series of works using colorful cut-out paper shapes. He is also highly regarded as a sculptor.
Flanders has represented Matisse for nearly 40 years. We have sold countless prints, drawings and sculpture, many of which are coming back on the market. If interested please inquire for current availability.
