2016 Henri Matisse Wall Calendar


Henri Matisse(French, 1869–1954), the supreme colorist of the twentieth century, studied at the École des Beaux-arts in Paris only to reject classical representation, relying instead on flat areas of vivid color and uneven smears of paint in his portraits, landscapes, and still lifes—the teachers he ranked above academic painters were the anonymous designers of exotic, brilliant textiles. From his sensational exhibition at the Paris Salon d’Automne of 1905 to his last creative outpouring of large-scale cutouts, Matisse has changed how we see the world.
