Often considered the most important French painter of the 20th century, Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954) is best known for the style of resplendent color and fluid lines shown in “Goldfish 1911.” A master painter, printer, sculptor, illustrator and collage artist, Matisse was originally a law student. First categorized as a Fauvist, his exceptional stylistic range included primitive art, impressionism and abstraction. Matisse described his art as a balance of serenity and purity filled with comforting subject matter. Acclaimed during his lifetime, his remarkable use of color and form continues to influence artists today. This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy.
