Henri Matisse | Biography

Henri Matisse was a French artist born on December 31st, 1869 and died November 3rd, 1954.  Matisse was not only a painter but a printmaker and sculptor as well. He came into art relatively late in life and made his reputation as the principal protagonist of Fauvism, the first avant-garde movement at the turn of the century.

He went on to develop a monumental decorative art, which was innovative both in its treatment of the human figure and in the constructive and expressive role accorded to color. Matisse's creativity extended into the area of graphic arts and book illustration with the illustrations to Stéphane Mallarmé's Poésies (1932), and culminated with the cutout compositions (1943–44) for his book Jazz (published in 1947). But the crowning achievement of Matisse's career was the commission for the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence (1948–51), for which he created all the wall decorations, Stations of the Cross, furniture, stained-glass windows, even the vestments and altar cloths. His reputation and works has Matisse labeled as one of the major artists of the 20th century.

There are now works of Matisse at the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the National Gallery of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
