Each title in the series will cover the work of a contemporary artist. The books will give a background to the life of the artist and focus on their techniques, skills, and the movements behind their work. The series will be colourful and picture-led with dramatic photographs of artwork to appeal to young readers and budding artists. Henri Matisse, the famous French artist (1869-1954) is the focus of this book. The movement of Fauvism, which was brought about through the work of Matisse and his friend Derain, was hugely influential and is now seen as the forerunner of Expressionism. Fauvism and particular paintings indicative of this movement and its techniques, for example, 'Open Window, Collioure, 1905' will be explored in-depth in this title.
