Henri Matisse was a classically trained artist who brought a thoroughly modern eye to his traditional foundations. The result was a daring new style, with flat planes of unbridled color and a bold use of line, which challenged his contemporaries to push the boundaries of modern art and helped Matisse become one of the defining artists of the 20th century. Over the course of his career, his style underwent several transformations, but his consistent pairing of simple, familiar subject matter—portraits, still lifes, nudes, and intimate domestic scenes—with innovative colors, lines, and forms ensures that Matisse’s works continue to captivate audiences to this day. The 30 works included in this postcard book are drawn from the extensive Matisse holdings in the collection of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
