Henri Matisse

The work of Henri Matisse with its bold shapes and right primary colors is ideal as inspiration for kids. Matisse’s cut paper collages are particularly fun to ‘reproduce’. Matisse started producing these (often large) paper collages toward the end of his career.

Henri Matisse was a French painter born in 1869 in France. He trained as a lawyer but discovered art and decided to become an artist after an attack of appendicitis which required surgery and a long period of recovery.

Matisse was inspired by the impressionist work of Vincent Van Gogh and other painters of his time.
