Description
Gaining notoriety for his early use of wildly bright and synthetic color to evoke mood and emphasize form, Henri Matisse moved through the postimpressionist period (Luxe, Calme et Volupté), fauvism (The Woman with the Hat), and cubism (Interior with Aubergines) in a career spanning five decades, surveyed here through 70 works seen in color plates. Throughout, Matisse's fascination with color and the female form resulted in numerous fantasies of women in costume and nude (Large Reclining Nude (The Pink Nude)), rendered in his own distinctive style. Finally, in ill health and unable to sustain the rigors of painting, Matisse achieved a final burst of creativity in the 1940s and 50s with his cutouts of colored paper (illustrations for the book Jazz) and his designs for the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence, France.
