A reference book on a reference artist!
The simultaneous approach to a single motif using two or several treatments of form constitutes one of the particular traits of the Matisse work. By carefully analysing history and techniques, the Centre Pompidou exhibition will enable you to investigate this singular procedure of Matisse. The whole work of the artist (from 1899 to 1952) is seen through very defined pairs of pictures.
