Modern art movement has a lot of notable artists in its favor and one of them is Henri Matisse. Born in 1869 in a small town of France, he was destined to be a painter. He studied law and practiced it as a law clerk but the inborn talent didn’t let him continue his former profession.

Style of Painting
He used different mediums like Picasso in his paintings and was known for using bold, dark colors and expressed himself through simple shapes. His paintings had intensity due the usage of contrasting colors like red with greens and blue with oranges.Examples are “Open window (1915)” and “Collioure.” He painted figures and human faces but the uniqueness in his creations was prominent, loud colors. He didn’t use skin or earth tones.

Matisse an All Rounder
Although Matisse was popular as painter, he also worked as a sculptor and print maker. His health didn’t let him continue his work as a painter; later on. He started making beautiful collages with papers cut into different shapes. They were named as Cutouts. He even expressed himself being on bed through his Cutouts.

He used different new techniques to attract the viewers. One of those techniques was scraping in which he applied several layers of paint, and then scrapped them off so that the underlying colors could be visible. An example of this was painted in 1939 titled as “Music”. Wet as well as dry paints were used by him for this purpose.

Impasto was another technique in which a thick layer of paint stood out on a painting using a wide paint brush or a knife.

Fauvism is a term used for his work style. It lasted for only four years. Fauvism is derived from a French word “Fauve” meaning “wild beast”. His work’s nature was wild and free. His subjects were architecture, still objects, women, landscape etc.
