Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was a native of Le Cateau-Cambrésis. Matisse originally began his career in law; however, bedridden after an appendectomy, he began to take up painting, using art supplies his mother gave him. Around a year later, Matisse relocated to France where he received his formal art education at the Academie Julian. During the 1890s, he also attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under Gustave Moreau. Matisse was most recognized for his human figure, still life and nude subjects, as well as his impressionism style and work in sculptures, monotypes, aquatints, lithography, etchings, drypoints and woodcuts. In his later years, Matisse experimented with cut-out collages. He is said to have been influenced by Neo-Impressionist painters Cezanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin, as well as pointillist artists Signac and Henri Edmond Cross. In 1925, Matisse was awarded the French Legion of Honor. During the 1930s, he was commissioned to illustrate books, as well as design murals for the Barnes Foundation of Philadelphia and the Chapel of Saint-Marie du Rosaire in Vence (near Cannes, France). In 1950, Matisse was awarded the grand prize at the Venice Biennale.
