Book Description

These handsomely illustrated volumes offer insight into the lives and works of those few unique individuals whose extraordinary creative genius has affected suceeding generations of artists and altered the way we view the world around us.

This volume details the legacy of Matisse to twentieth century art. He excelled at producing seductive bright colors and expressing the poetry of the human figure with a mere essence of line and shape. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The quality is outstanding for a book this price.
Well illustrated and the color is excellent. A good book
to get you into Matisse.
NOTE: The price is now much higher since my initial review, which
puts it in competition with other Matisse books in this
higher price bracket. In other words, it is a great book, but
I would advise shopping around, and checking out the
other Matisse books in this price range.

something great often starts extremely simple. Matisse remains an ultimate favorite paint of mine because of its originality and simplicity in his themes and techniques. Fauvism has called colors and form back
