Henri Matisse: A Second Life

by Alastair Sooke - £5.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241969083 | ISBN 10: 0241969085

Henri Matisse was one of the most important and beloved artists of the twentieth century, rivalled only by his friend - and rival - Pablo Picasso. In a body of work spanning over a half-century, he was variously a draughtsman, a printmaker, a sculptor and a painter.
This short book is both a biography and a guide to his art. It focuses on the extraordinary works that Henri Matisse made during the last period of his life - the large-scale cut-outs on coloured paper, including his famous Blue Nudes, The Snail and Large Composition with Masks.
