Artist: Matisse, Henri
About the Artist: "Matisse was born at Cateau-Cambrésis (Nord) and initially trained in law. He began painting in about 1890 and studied first with Bouguereau at the Académie Julian and then with Gustave Moreau at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (1892-7). Influenced mainly by Cézanne, Gauguin and Renoir, Matisse developed with associates like Derain a bold simplified style. When they exhibited their work at the 1905 Salon d'Automne, Matisse and his friends were described by a critic as 'fauves' (wild beasts), a term which inspired the label fauvism."
