Henri Matisse - 'Female Head' Wood Framed Print & Mount, 63 x 53cm, Black/White

Product description

Product code: 77521905

An elegant ink drawing by Henri Matisse, who believed that line drawing was "the purest and most direct translation" of his ideas. The artist's whole creative process was built upon the strength and beauty of his line.

The picture frame is made of carefully selected solid ash wood from sustainably managed forests. The wood is consistent in colour and grain and the timber is milled in the UK and finished by hand. Made by museum specialists, this lithographic museum print has a cotton core mount and is ready to hang on your wall.

Henri Matisse was known for his fluid use of colour and is recognised as a leading figure in modern art in the early twentieth century. Over six decades, he carved a career using all forms of media, including drawing, sculpture and printmaking.

Born 1869 in Le Cateau-Cambrésis in northern France, he was originally a legal clerk. He began drawing at an evening class before moving to Paris in 1891 to pursue his vocation as an artist. It wasn't until the beginning of the twentieth century when he had his major creative breakthrough. A visit to Saint-Tropez inspired him to paint a bright, light-dappled canvas. He continued this style, which became known as Fauvism.

Some of his most noted pieces happened during his later years. He was often bedridden due to illness and surgery but he still managed to produce breakthrough works using paper cut-outs.
