Henri Matisse (December 31, 1869 - November 3, 1954) was a French artist, known for his use of colour and his fluid draughtsmanship. As a printmaker and sculptor, but principally as a painter, Matisse is one of the best-known artists of the twentieth century. His mastery of the expressive language of colour and drawing, displayed in a body of work spanning over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art.
