9780141030784: Matisse: The Life

Henri Matisse was one of the most important and beloved artists of the twentieth century, rivalled only by his friend - and competitor - Pablo Picasso. Hilary Spurling's The Unknown Matisse and Matisse the Master were together heralded as the definitive biography of the artist, and Matisse the Master went on to win the Whitbread Book of the Year award in 2005.

In this abridged, one-volume edition, Hilary Spurling reveals the origins of Matisse's astonishing talent, provides a unique insight into his life and work, and, by documenting the difficult path he took alone, clearly places him at the front rank of those who made art modern.

Review:

'Praise for Volume One: 'Shows Spurling at her brilliant best as passionate scholar, traveller and storyteller ... lavishly illustrated and lovingly well written' Daily Telegraph Praise for Volume Two: 'An outstanding biography, as full of insights into the pictures as it is revealing about the man' Jeanette Winterson, The Times 'Destined to remain the standard biography for a long time. Spurling has done better than anyone else at uncovering intimate information about Matisse' Guardian
