The art of drawing, from charcoal to fishing rod

As a leader of the Fauvism movement, Henri Matisse marked his time and continues to be a source of inspiration for today’s generations. If La Desserte Rouge and La Danse are some pictorial works that come directly to mind when Matisse is mentioned, he is also a drawer with a unique and easily recognized style. Whether in charcoal or gouache, on a wide paper size or on the walls of a ceiling, the artist experiments different frame to convey emotions.

Despite his illness, the artist never stopped creating. He could no longer paint as he did in his youth? Never mind, a fishing rod would be enough for his grandchildren to watch over his sleep, up from the ceiling.

Henri Matisse was a genius and prolific, as the tribute entirely dedicated to him by this museum testifies.
