This serigraph is unsigned. One of the most influential figures of modern art, Henri Matisse was a virtuoso of multiple media and styles. He was the principal founder of Fauvism and, throughout his career, used bold, expressive color that often gives his works a rich surface design. He was also a masterful draftsman, with enchantingly fluid, confident lines. Educated and trained in Paris, Matisse spent most of his life in the South of France.
