Henri Émile Benoît Matisse.

He lived from 31 December 1869 to 3 November 1954. He was a French visual artist, known for both his use of color and his original draughtsmanship.

He was a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but is known mainly as a painter.

Matisse and Pablo Picasso were the artists who best helped to define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the first decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.

His mastery of the expressive language of color and drawing, displayed in a body of work won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art.

Fauvism, an art moviment.

It was a style that began around 1900 and continued beyond 1910.

The art movement as such lasted only a few years and had three exhibitions.

The leaders of the movement were Matisse and André Derain.

Matisse’s first solo exhibition was at Ambroise Vollard’s gallery in 1904, without much success.
