About Author:

Henri Matisse Riva Castleman Sophie Hawkes

Henri Matisse was a French artist, known for his use of colour and his fluid, brilliant and original draughtsmanship As a draughtsman, printmaker, and sculptor, but principally as a painter, Matisse is one of the best known artists of the 20th century Although he was initially labeled as a Fauve wild beast , by the 1920s, he was increasingly hailed as an upholder of the classical tradition in French painting 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.

    I was seduced by the cover of this book. I called the picture, a paper-cut, 'Star Man' and even after I knew it was Icarus, to me it was Star Man swimming strongly through the universe with a fiercly beating heart.

    "Jazz is rhythm and meaning". Henri MatisseIcarus found his death disobeying his father’s warning and going too close to the sun. The light and the beauty of the star absorbed him and Icarus tried the impossible, aiming to reach the unreachable. The wax in his wings melted and he fell into the sea. Icarus’s image on the cover of Jazz was the main reason I wanted to know more about this book. And soon, reading it, I would understand that Matisse was ready to sacrifice his life for art’s sak [...]

    The cover is the best part of the book, but I enjoyed perusing the rest. Even though Henri's notes are handwritten in French, translations are provided. There isn't much to the book, so I'd hesitate to recommend it to anyone other than Matisse admirers.

    Not the version I read, but this is as close as it got. I love Matisse's cut-outs
