MATISSE’S GOLDFISH

A great introduction to a master’s work, between fiction and art book.

 

Sandrine Andrews explores the life of Matisse through the eyes of his goldfish; his family, his house, his models and above all, his art and inspiration. Instead of imitating Matisse’s style, Julia Chausson’s refined woodcut illustrations recreate the atmosphere of that period, while 6 pages at the end of the book detail Matisse’s life and most famous paintings and collages.

A beautiful picture book that calls to mind the universe of the Fauvist painter with its warm toned illustrations.Dada
