An account of Henri Matisse's activity as a maker of portraits and self-portraits. The author considers the transaction that produces a portrait - a transaction between the artist and the sitter that is social as much as artistic - and investigates the social contexts of Matisse's sitters.

A perfect facsimile of Jazz, a 20th century masterpiece This two-volume edition includes a perfect facsimile of Matisse's seminal cut-out work: Jazz. At last, readers can experience Jazz as if holding the 1947 original. The reputation of Henri Matisse (1869–1954) as the most important artist of the modern era is rivaled only by Picasso—who himself said, "All things considered, there is only Matisse." Towards the end of his monumental career as a painter, sculptor, and lithographer, an elderly, sickly Matisse was unable to stand and use a paintbrush. So at almost 80 years of age, he developed a new technique: he drew shapes on colored paper, cut them out and pasted them together. These gouaches decoupées (gouache cut-outs) represented a revolution in modern art, yet their simplicity was dismissed by many critics as the folly of a senile old man. Later critics realized that Matisse had found a brilliant solution to the age-old conflict between line and color—one that would profoundly influence generations of artists to come. Printed in exactly the same colors, using paper and inks similar to the 1947 edition, the facsimile volume allows readers to experience Jazz in its original, unbound form. * Printed in 18 colors on a small offset press, 4 pages at a time, to obtain the highest fidelity to the original * Printed on Old Mill in 190 g/m² from Italian paper mill Fedrigoni. This paper is of archival quality and has a felt-like softness, much like handmade paper * As with the original, this reprint is unbound and folded in signatures of 4 pages. It is protected by a French folded jacket and a hard-backed cover The second volume provides a thorough historical context to Matisse's cut-outs, tracing their genesis in his 1930 trip to Tahiti, through to his final years in Nice. Also included are other pivotal works from his later career, including his contributions to Verve magazine and his exquisite decoration of the Vence Chapel. Includes rare and historic photographs by Matisse taken in Tahiti, as well as photos of Matisse by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, and the filmmaker Murnau. The text is supplemented by quotations from Matisse, Picasso, E. Tériade (the publisher of Jazz and Verve), the poets Louis Aragon, Henri Michaux, and Pierre Reverdy, and Matisse's son-in-law, Georges Duthuit.

Henri Matisse’s experiments with form and color revolutionized the twentieth-century art world. In this concise critical biography, Kathryn Brown explores Matisse’s long career, beginning with his struggles as a student in Paris and culminating in his celebrated use of paper cutouts and stained glass in the last decade of his life. The book challenges various myths about Matisse and offers a fresh perspective on his creativity and legacy. Chapters explore the artist’s enthusiasm for fashion and cinema, his travels, personal ties, interest in African art, love of literature, and willingness to challenge audience expectations. Through close readings of Matisse’s works, Brown offers new insight into the artist’s friendships and battles with dealers, critics, collectors, and fellow artists.

The reputation of Henri Matisse (1869-1954) as the most important artist of the modern era is rivaled only by Picasso -- who himself said, "All things considered, there is only Matisse." Towards the end of his monumental career as a painter, sculptor, and lithographer, an elderly, sickly Matisse was unable to stand and use a paintbrush for a longer period of time. In this late phase of his life -- he was almost 80 years of age -- he developed the technique of creating brightly colored paper cut-outs. These gouaches decoupees (gouache cut-outs) represented a revolution in modern art, yet their simplicity was dismissed by many critics as the folly of a senile old man. Later critics realized that Matisse had found a brilliant solution to the age-old conflict between line and color -- one that would profoundly influence generations of artists to come.

Now available in a new edition, this compact and beautifully designed volume opens the doors of Henri Matisse's atelier to reveal the artist's most intimate work. For Henri Matisse, drawing was an exercise as personal as it was essential to his art. These black and white and gently colored sketches allow the viewer to appreciate the quality of Matisse's lines, their confidence and ease, as well as the intense relationship between artist and model. Matisse's joie de vivre, his love of beauty, and his fascination with the human body are fully in evidence in this lovely volume.

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) considered his drawing to be a very intimate means of expression - the "purest" and "most direct." His method of execution varied from charcoal, pencil, crayon, etcher's burin, lithographic tusche, to paper cut. Frequently his composition was of the female form. This small book reproduces drawings from late in the artist's career, when he created series of drawings in the great French tradition of the artist's book (livre de peintre), where original prints are combined with carefully selected texts. Included are illustrations from Jazz and other works.

Presented in its entirety for the first time since 1983. First published in 1947, Henri Matisse's collection of paper cut-outs in Jazz represented a culmination of the artist's striving to combine his love of form and color. Like jazz, the musical genre they celebrate, these works are at once spontabeous and unified, improvisational yet clearly orchestrated. Serving as a complement of these blasts of color are messages, in matisse's own handwriting, of his ideas and inspirations. With the use of special colors (including 16 different tones) the 20 plates achieve the brilliant intensity of the original. The resulting book is one of the twentieth century's most significant works of art.
