Henri Matisse

Unanimously considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Henri Matisse escapes any classification. He is one of the promoters of fauvism, but, from a color revolt, his art aims to be a reflection on the line, the balance, and the synthesis of the forms. Artist by accident Henri Émile Benoît Matisse, French painter, designer and sculptor, was born on December 31, 1869 to the Cateau-Cambrésis and died on November 3, 1954 in Nice. Voué to become a notary clerk, it was during a long convalescence due to a crisis of appendicitis that Matisse meets painting. He declares: "[…] For me it was the paradise found in which I was completely free, quiet, confident while I was always a little anxious, bored and worried in The different things that I was done. "Painted his first painting in 1890, at the age of 21. Two years later, the artist went to Paris to study at the School of Fine Arts, within the workshop of Gustave Moreau. Looking for simplicity & nbsp; from his first lessons with Moreau, Matisse launched himself In an insatiable quest for simplicity, both aesthetic and philosophical. All of his career, the same themes are essential: open windows, indolent women ... A completely antithetic laziness of its creator and, above all, pretext for prospecting of the artistic field. "The work heals everything" said Matisse. & Nbsp; the work of the painter, of an apparent simplicity, "this bright fruit of light" loved by Apollinaire, arises from a hard work, which always seeks to testify to the 'unspeakable feeling, one of his last paintings of which carries the title: the inhabited silence of the houses.
