Matisse by Henri Matisse ( Book )
276 editions published between 1900 and 2009 in 11 languages and held by 4,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume traces the career of Henri Matisse from the Fauve paintings of the 1907 Salon d'Automne to the final flowering of his paper cut-outs, culminating in his masterpiece, the Vence Chapel. Along the way, the author describes the full range of Matisse's paintings, sculpture, book illustrations, and paper cut-outs with visual sensitivity and a keen knowledge of technique. At times, the author seems to pause to look at specific masterpieces in all their complexity--The Dinner Table, Le Bonheur de vivre, and Luce, calme et volupe, among many others. He also shows us how Matisse responded to the artistic, political, and social events of his day, from Cubism to the two World Wars
Matisse the master : a life of Henri Matisse, the conquest of colour, 1909-1954 by Hilary Spurling ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is hard to believe today that Matisse was once almost universally reviled and ridiculed. His response was neither to protest nor to retreat; he simply pushed on from one innovation to the next, and left the world to draw its own conclusions. Unfortunately, these were generally false and often damaging. Throughout his life and afterward people fantasized about his models and circulated baseless fabrications about his private life. Fifty years after his death, this biography shows us the painter as he saw himself. With unprecedented access to new material, Spurling documents a lifetime of desperation and self-doubt. Here for the first time is the truth about Matisse's models; but every woman who played a part in Matisse's life was remarkable in her own right, not least his beloved daughter Marguerite, whose honesty and courage surmounted all ordeals, including interrogation and torture by the Gestapo in the Second World War.--From publisher description

Matisse Picasso by Elizabeth Cowling ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation. Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso have long been seen as the twin giants of modern art, as polar opposites but also as complementary figures. Between them they are the originators of many of the most significant innovations of 20th-century painting and sculpture, but their relationship has rarely been explored in all of its closeness and complexity. In spite of their initial rivalry, the two masters eventually acknowledged one another as equals, becoming, in their old age, increasingly important to one another both artistically and personally. From the time of their initial encounters in 1906 in Gertrude and Leo Stein's Paris studio until 1917, they individually produced some of the greatest art of the 20th century and maintained an openly competitive relationship brimming with intense innovation. Matisse Picasso presents the artists' oeuvres in groupings that reveal the affinities but also the extreme contrasts of their artistic visions. Published to accompany the landmark exhibition (a joint effort of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Tate Modern, London; the Reunion des musees nationaux/Musee Picasso, and the Musee national d'art moderne/Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris), Matisse Picasso is the first major examination of the fascinating relationships between their art, their careers, and their lives. Thirty-four essays, each by a member of the exhibition's curatorial team, focus on a particular moment in the artists' evolving relationship. These texts are accompanied by an introductory history, commentary on the public perception of important artistic relationships, and an extensive chronology

Matisse : radical invention, 1913-1917 by Stephanie D'Alessandro ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the working method, experimental techniques, and compositional choices Matisse used in works created between 1913 and 1917. The works that Henri Matisse (1869-1954) executed between late 1913 and 1917 are among his most demanding, experimental, and enigmatic. Often sharply composed, heavily reworked, and dominated by the colors black and gray, these compositions are rigorously abstracted and purged of nearly all descriptive detail. Although they have typically been treated as unrelated to one another, as aberrations within the artist's oeuvre, or as singular responses to Cubism or World War I, this book reveals the deep connections among them

Matisse, from color to architecture by René Percheron ( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and French and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book traces and sheds new light on the development of Henri Matisse's oeuvre, which spans some sixty years. Lavishly illustrated with almost four hundred images, this deluxe volume includes reproductions of the artist's most famous paintings paired with lesser-known documents and photographs culled from the archives of his estate. The authors also gathered firsthand accounts related by numerous participants in the Vence and Le Cateau projects. The result is an almost day-to-day look at Matisse's process as he created these works, as well as an intimate portrait of both the artist and the man."--BOOK JACKET
