Henri Matisse created a work whose radiance and originality is incomparable, his brightly colored pictures are a single commitment to joie de vivre, lightheartedness and sensitivity. With well-founded texts and numerous illustrations, this volume provides fascinating insights into the life and artistic development of Henri Matisse, one of the most important pioneers of modern art.
It is above all the famous silhouettes from Matisse's late work that many have in mind when they think of his art. The cut-outs were created in the last phase of his life, when he was already bedridden and swapped brushes for scissors. In the new volume of Junge Kunst, Markus Müller competently and vividly presents how his artistic creativity developed into these intensely colored and almost abstract works. An illustrated biography and finds from the archive, which can be shown because of the author's close connection to the artist's estate, present Matisse as an artist whose paintings are a celebration of color and form.
