Henri Matisse (1869 - 1954) was a French artist, known for both his use of colour and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. He was a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but is known primarily as a painter. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the twentieth century.
Fauvism is the style of les Fauves, a loose group of early twentieth-century Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong color over the representational or realistic values retained by Impressionism. The movement lasted only a few years, and had three exhibitions. The leaders of the movement were Henri Matisse and Andre Derain. Major works and painting style
Matisse used pure colors and the white of exposed canvas to create a light-filled atmosphere. He used contrasting areas of pure, unmodulated color, which deliberately expressed disorientating and unsettling emotions. Luxury, Calm and Pleasur
A man invites his lover to travel with him to paradise. Most of the women are nude (in the manner of a traditional classical idyll), but one woman - thought to represent the painter's wife - wears contemporary dress. The Woman with a Hat
Matisse attacked conventional portraiture with this image and shocked his contemporaries. Amelie's pose and dress are typical for the day, but Matisse roughly applied brilliant color across her face, hat, dress, and even the background. Joy of Life
He used a landscape to provide the setting for the idyll, but it is also influenced by ideas drawn from Watteau, Poussin, Japanese woodcuts, Persian miniatures, and 19th century Orientalist images of harems. Evaluation of Henri Matisse:
Matisse and Fauvism state as a precursor of Abstract Expressionism and modern art. His art was important in endorsing the value of decoration in modern art. He is popularly regarded as a painter devoted to pleasure and contentment.
