Artist Bio

Henri Matisse was a prominent French artist born in 1869. In 1887 he originally intended to study law in Paris, but he first started painting in 1889 after he had appendicitis. It was then he decided to study art at the Académie Julian. Best known for his Fauvist style, French expressionist Henri Matisse became one of the most influential artists of the 20th century through his revolutionary use of expressive color and exaggerated form to express emotion in his artworks. Works by Henri Matisse can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Art Institute of Chicago and several other collections internationally.
