Matisse the master : a life of Henri Matisse, the conquest of colour, 1909-1954 by Hilary Spurling( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,634 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 Réunion des musées nationaux (France)( Book )

20 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,163 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 )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 730 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 as a draughtsman by Baltimore Museum of Art( Book )

13 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important documentation of over 80 Matisse drawings and watercolors covers the span of the artist's career from 1900 through 1952, illustrating the master's great technical competence, his far ranging explorations, and originality in the medium. Included are rare watercolors from his Collioure period and previously unpublished drawings of the Fauvist and Cubist periods. All works are illustrated, one to a page, with complete data and commentary placing each in its historical context and describing the stylistic evolution from his early naturalistic studies of form to the late almost abstract figures of Acrobats--Jacket
Henri Matisse by Gilles Néret( Book )

25 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extraordinary significance of the painter and sculptor Henri Matisse in the history of modern art, but also his influence, was no less decisive than that of his main rival, Pablo Picasso. Matisse is widely acknowledged as an artist whose canvases are extremely difficult to reproduce in print. With this in mind, each work presented here has been painstakingly compared with the respective original, in close collaboration with the artist's grandson, Claude Duthuit. The bard of color deserves no less -- Provided by publisher
