DEVENIR MATISSE – 1890-1911 The Greatest Gift of the Masters


A monograph of Henri Matisse’s early career and works showing the awakening of his painterly genius. It Accompanies an exhibition at Musée Matisse, Cateau-Cambrésis from 9th November 2019 to 9th February 2020

On the 150th anniversary of the painter Henri Matisse (1869-1954), the Musée Matisse in Cateau-Cambresis, which was founded by the artist in his hometown in 1952, pays tribute to the lesser-known man of the North, who became one of the greatest masters of the 20th century.
This exhibition reveals the mystery of the first 20 years of his career and the awakening of a genius moving from shadow to light. It honours his early works from the revelation of painting, and his academic training until the end of his academic studies in Paris, where he taught until 1911.
