Henri Matisse and his works

Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse (December 31, 1869-November 3, 1954) was a French artist, designer, engraver, sculptor and painter of the early twentieth century, best known as a painter. His influence on this art is enormous.

Matisse is considered one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century due to his
innovations and influence on his contemporaries. The historical significance of his discoveries in
the field of pure colour can be seen in the extent to which Cub
ism achieved the liberation of form from the shackles of objective representation. Matisse studied law and first worked in the same
field, but at the age of twenty-two, he entered the world of art. In his painting, he gained
experience in sculpture and was considered one of the leading artists of the Dodger or Fauvist group.


In 1905, a group of young painters held an exhibition in Paris known as Les Fauves, meaning
“wild animals” or “savages.” The name was given to them because they openly ignored natural
shapes and turned to harsh colours; but there was no savagery in reality. The most famous
painter in this group was named Henri Matisse.


The first exhibition of his work was in 1905 when he and his friends were given the derogatory
title Foo. He started an art school where he taught his artistic principles. In a painter’s notes, he
outlined the principles on which twentieth-century painting’s next evolution was based. He saw
the exhibition of Islamic art in Munich (1910) and went to Morocco to study art more and settle in Nish.

Designs for the 1919 Dance of the Nightingale Song (Stravinsky-Diaghilf). He exhibited his
collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1913). In the United States, he
commissioned a mural entitled Dance. In the same years, he depicted the poems of Mallarmé and
the police of Joyce. Tested the glued paper method for the first time in 1937. Decorated the
chapel of the city of Vance, France 1949–1951. He won the first prize at the Venice Biennale(1950). His four reliefs, entitled Back (1909-1930),indicate his in-depth research into three-dimensional form and structure issues.

In 1892 he was a member of the Bogreau Academy for a few months, and from 1892 to 1897, he studied under Gustave Moreau and was strongly influenced by Impressionism. In 1901 he became acquainted with Wlaming with Darren. He had previously been friends with Dern and turned to segregation around 1892, but in 1903-1901 he turned to Cézanne and adopted a darker tone versus the artificial quality of Signac’s brilliant colour. Sinac’s influence was renewed in 1904 when Matisse was again inspired to live with him in the south of France, and this contact
also inspired him in his painting “Luxury, Peace and Lust.”

This painting started the Dedgari movement. This happened in 1905, but amid public opposition,Matthias gained support from the Stein family, who bought his paintings and encouraged other Americans to buy them, and later Russians such as Sergei Shokin and Morosov became his prominent supporters.
Matisse began collecting African statues (Darren and Wlaming were also interested in these statues) and took these native handicrafts with him from a trip to Algeria in 1906 to France, although they had less of an impact on him than Cubism. In 1906, he exhibited “The Joy of Life” (Philadelphia, Barnes Foundation), which represented a fundamental shift in the direction of Cincinnati’s separation from the Cézanne style with paganism.

Dining table

Henri Matisse studied the colours of Oriental moulds and North African landscapes and developed a style that had a significant impact on modern design. Dining table painting is one of his paintings related to 1908. We see that Matisse continued Pierre Bonar’s style, but although Bonar still wanted to maintain the effects of light and radiance, Matisse went a long way in transforming the scene in front of him into a decorative design. The interaction of wallpaper and desktop texture with objects on the table is the central theme of this image. Even the female figure and the view through the window are part of the design. The picture of the woman and the trees is straightforward and even distorted to match the wallpaper’s flowers. The painter named the work harmony in red, reminiscent of James McNeill Whistler’s paintings’ titles.
