Henri MATISSE

Born in 1869, Henri Matisse was a french painter, draftsman, engraver and sculptor who died in 1954.

A major figure of the twentieth century, his influence on the art of the second half of the century was considerable through his use of simplification, stylization, synthesis and colour.

He was the leader of Fauvism.

Pablo Picasso considered him his rival.
