As one of the key artistic voices of the modern art era, Henri Matisse revolutionised how artists approached colour in their compositions. It is this influence, combined with the celebrated stature of his works, that encouraged New York's Museum of Modern Art to dedicate a volume of their Artist Series, a series of books highlighting true modern masters, to him. Featuring fantastic illustrations of Matisse's masterworks in the museum's collection, this volume serves as a wonderful reminder of just how influential Matisse was.
