“The bright and cheerful illustrations draw heavily on Matisse's drawings, paintings, and collages. Facts about the artist's life and style are also skillfully woven into the story and illustrations. Whether in an art-themed storytime or one-on-one sharing, readers will find this book uplifting.”
School Library Journal, February 2008
From the Inside Flap
When Monique, a young visiting nurse, steps into the home of an elderly patient, she finds herself in rooms filled with the most vivid colors she has ever seen. Her patient is the artist Henri Matisse, one of the greatest colorists in the history of art. Though they become friends, life's circumstances send them each in different directions until they meet again several years later. It is this second encounter that inspires them to begin an extraordinary and creative project. The result is the dazzling Matisse Chapel that stands today in southern France--the artist's final masterpiece.
Matisse the King of Color is one more title in author and illustrator Laurence Anholt's series of stories about world famous artists and the young people who knew them. In each of these books Anholt's fine illustrations include copies of works by the featured artist.
