Product story

Why didn't I think of it earlier? More and more, I feel that one can express with the simplest cut-out what one might want to express as a draughtsman or painter... By entering into the object one comes into one's own.
Henri Matisse

This book, from the Basic Art Series 2.0 by Taschen, is an essential book on the exuberantly creative final chapter of Matisse’s life and includes a concise biography and over 100 illustrations in full colour.

The author Gilles Néret (1933–2005) was an art historian, journalist, writer, museum correspondent and director of art reviews such as L'Œil and Connaissance des Arts. He received the Élie Faure Prize in 1981 for his publications.
