Abstract:

"Henri Matisse's adventures in color and light constitute a landmark in the history of modern art. From his apprenticeship in the studio of Gustave Moreau to the paper cut-outs of the 1950s, the stages of this journey represent a triumph of artistic research and resolution, as well as a shining example of pictorial quality and theoretical and moral integrity." "The more than 300 reproductions of this volume, and the accompanying texts, provide a fascinating survey of a complex life which crossed the paths of other legendary figures of the age. These figures include painters such as Picasso, Renoir, Derain, Braque and Bonnard; writers like Apollinaire, Aragon and Reverdy; and collectors such as Stein, Shchukin and Barnes, all combining to create an artistic climate that for sheer energy and fervor was unequalled in our century. In this context, the figure of Matisse is impressive all the more for its versatility. His lucid theories on poetics to his astonishing experiments in the fields of design, engraving and sculpture, all played a key role in his overall vision of the artistic process.
