Mister Matisse and his cutouts
|Responsibility:||Annemarie van Haeringen ; translated by Jan Michael.|
In this nonfiction picture book, we discover the changing artistic style of Henri Matisse, one of the world's most celebrated artists. His colors make everyone happy, but when he gets sick and is hospitalized, the room is too white, too plain. Matisse began to make cut-paper collages to brighten his room.
