T1 Henri Matisse A1 Néret, Gilles., Matisse, Henri,, Bacon, Josephine., PB Taschen PP Köln; New York YR 1999 SN 3822865354 9783822865354 AB The extraordinary significance of the painter and sculptor Henri Matisse in the history of modern art, but also his influence, was no less decisive than that of his main rival, Pablo Picasso. Matisse is widely acknowledged as an artist whose canvases are extremely difficult to reproduce in print. With this in mind, each work presented here has been painstakingly compared with the respective original, in close collaboration with the artist's grandson, Claude Duthuit.
