Matisse on Art, Revised edition


Flam, Jack, ed.

The major writings of Henri Matisse (1869-1954), with the exception of the letters, are collected here along with transcriptions of important interviews and broadcasts given at various stages of Matisse’s career. Jack Flam provides a biography, a general introduction that addresses the development of Matisse’s aesthetic values and theories, and a critical introduction for each text.


“If you want to extend the boundaries of ordinary perception, in order to produce unique, distinctive visions read this book. It is a critical piece of literature written by a masterfully innovative painter. I recommend it as a professional artist for nearly 20 years and as an art professor.” — reviewed by Stephanie Rose Bird.
