Matisse, Henri
image description
Henri Matisse was the leading painter in the Fauve movement. As a French Expressionist, he was driven more by feelings of joy in the act of making art, rather than by angst. In his elegant drypoint, the artist displays a refined use of line to achieve a sense of harmony between two-dimensional and three-dimensional qualities. Matisse employs an economy of means in the use of line to suggest the delicately foreshortened clothed human figure.
