MATISSE

Simple Beauty
by Paul Chapman.

THE LECTURE

Matisse is regarded as one of the artists who best helped to define revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the opening decades of the twentieth century. His intense use of colour between 1900 and 1905 brought him notoriety as one of the Fauves (wild beasts). During WW1 he moved to the South of France, here his work became more figurative, and he was heralded as an upholder of the French Classical tradition.
