Henri Matisse by Carolyn Lanchner
Book DescriptionHenri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Andy Warhol each significantly shaped the development of art in the 20th century. These modern masters are the subjects of four small books, the first volumes in a series featuring important artists in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Each book presents a single artist and guides readers through a dozen of his most memorable achievements. Works are reproduced in colour and accompanied by informative and accessible short essays that provide background on the artworks and on the artist himself, illuminating technique, style, subject matter and significance. Written by Carolyn Lanchner, former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, these books are excellent resources for readers interested in the stories behind masterpieces of the modern canon and for those who wish to understand the contributions of individual artists to the history of modern art.
