One of the most important modern painters, Henri Matisse helped launch the turn-of-the-century art movement know as Fauvism. Favoring the use of violent hues calculated to stir the emotions of viewers, Matisse and the other Fauvists ("wild beasts") turned their passion for pure color into an art revolution, creating innovative works of vivid intensity.
With his unique coloring book, artists, art lovers, would-be painters, and anyone with an interest in modern art can gain a greater understanding and appreciation of Matisse's works. Included are 30 carefully drawn black-and-white reproductions of works from the artist's long and prolific career, including such masterpieces as Blue Nude I, La Danse, and Icarus, as well as Chinese Fish, Zulma, Nuit de Noël, The Circus, The Sword Swallower, and paintings that reflect Mediterranean influences: The Thousand and One Nights and Moorish Café. Captions identify each work.
Colorists can select hues from their own palettes to bring these remarkable pictures to life or follow Matisse's own color schemes. Whatever approach is used, coloring book fans as well as art students and enthusiasts will revel in this opportunity to explore the mastery of color, imagination, and artistic ideas of a giant of modern art.
