Description - Henri Matisse by Alastair Sooke

An essential guide to one of the 20th century's greatest artists - published in time for a major Tate Modern retrospective

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.
