Henri Matisse (1869-1954), a famous French painter, sculptor, printmaker, founder and main representative of the Fauvism, is represented by Luxury, Tranquility and Joy, Joy of Life, Open Window, Women in Hats, etc.
He is famous for using bright and bold colors. Matisse's passion for painting was overwhelmed by an accident at the age of 21, and occasional opportunities became a turning point in his life. In his own words, "I seem to be summoned, and henceforth I no longer dominate my life, but it dominates me."
