9780151399956: Henri Matisse

HENRI MATISSE a Novel, by ARAGON, Volumes 1 & 2 in a Burnt Orange Slipcase, Harcourt Brace, Jovanovich, First American Edition(s), 1972. This is a Two (2) Volume Set in a Hard Shell Slipcase. This is a BEAUTIFUL set. They are white cloth with Orange lettering. The Dust Jackets are PRISTINE as well. Louis Aragon is one of France's foremost Poets, Matisse is one of France's most glorious Painters. To Aragon, in the darkest moments in France's history, Matisse became France itself...Henri Matisse, a Novel, tells of a spiritual adventure, that of the man's work in painting, drawing and sculpture, and is not a series of anecdotes, of piquant facts about the young man I never knew or the old man whom I met when he was the age I am now rapidly approaching...This book is about a Painter, and the expression of himself that he wanted to leave behind, that is, his paintings, his drawings, his sculptures and those paper cut-outs that he invented to crown his work. Every canvas, every sheet of paper over which his charcoal, his pencil or his pen wandered is Matisse's utterance about himself...It's through this that I have sought to reveal my protagonist.
