Henri Matisse, French, 1869 - 1954

Matisse was a French artist known for his use of colour and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. He was a draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor, but is known primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, alongside Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century. Although he was initially labelled a Fauve, by the 1920s he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art.
