Matisse’s unique pictorial language employs a diverse range of lines, light, and composition, which borrow traits from Neo-Clasissicism, Realism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism. His work varies from landscapes and still lifes, to portraiture and domestic interiors, yet his primary focus remained on the female figure. His bold, sinuous lines articulate a kind of voluptuous idealistic figure.

About Henri MatisseView Profile »
Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954) is primarily known as the founder of the Fauvist movement, a result of Impressionism, whose works fundamentally altered the course of Modern Art in the late 20th Century. Innovative in his original treatment of the human figure and an expressive use of color, Matisse forged his own pictorial language. Matisse's career can be divided into several stylistic periods, but he remained focused on discovering “the essential character of things” through his art.Interested in consigning works by Henri Matisse?
