Item description for Henri Matisse (Taschen Basic Art Series) by Gilles Neret...

Traces Henri Matisse's search for balance, purity and serenity, from the chromatic brilliance of his Fauve period, through his travels, the Orient, geometric synthesis, and the odalisques to the triumph when, at the age of eighty, he invented his gouache cut-outs. He is acknowledged as an artist whose canvases are difficult to reproduce in print.

Reviews - What do customers think about Henri Matisse (Taschen Basic Art Series)?

Matisse  Jul 22, 2005
Pretty good book. I used it for an essay at school and it provided some valuable information and was my primary source. I thought it was a little quote heavy, as half the book is quotes from Matisse or art critics. Some are valuable, but others are just useless fluff. For example, in the begining there is a page long paragraph devoted to why everyone called Matisse a "doctor" and a hedonist or something. It bears no significance to what Matisse did.

I also wish that the book would have talked more extensively about his impact and effects on art. The book says some but the information isn't really centralized and its sort of here and there throughout the book. I wish there would have been a couple pages at the end or something about it.

Otherwise there is a lot of pictures and they're all real good quality. Also had pretty good analysis of some of his paintings, like their meanings and compositional elements that make it great etc... It also covers his entire life, before Fauvism to paper collages. I recommend it.
A good book with accurate color  Jan 11, 2001
This is a wonderful book. The color seems very accurate. There are many artbooks with inaccurate color reproduced. I compared several photos in this book with the real Matisse's paintings, the color is all accurate.
