Henri Matisse (1869—1954) was a revolutionary French painter, printmaker, draftsman, and sculptor. He is widely recognized as the leader o the Modern art movement, Fauvism, which is characterized by the use of strong color and bold, expressive brushstrokes. He drew and painted from nature, frequently depicting still life and women, placing his figures in fully realized interiors. Later, Matisse’s cut paper collages became the technique he referred to as “painting with scissors.”
