Henri Matisse

       Henri Matisse (December 31, 1869 – November 3, 1954) was the leading French artist of the 20th century. Particularly noted for his striking use of color, Matisse is one of the very few indisputable giants of modern art, alongside Picasso and Kandinsky. He was born Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse in Le Cateau-Cambrésis, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France, and grew up in Bohain-en-Vermandois. In 1887 he went to Paris to study law. After gaining his qualification he worked as a court administrator in Le Cateau-Cambrésis. Following an attack of appendicitis he took up painting during his convalescence. After his recovery, he returned to Paris in 1891 to study art at the Académie Julian and became a student of Odilon Redon and Gustave Moreau.
