In this art history video about the French artist and painter Henri Matisse, I’ll tell you 10 amazing facts you did not know about his life. He got into painting late after training at Law School. He took three attempts to get into the Ecole des Beaux Arts , the best art school in France located in Paris. He was a conservative individual, but his meeting with Andre Derain and Maurice Vlaminck led to the creation of Fauvism and a complete change in the way he painted. His paintings are comfortable, very colourful and very easy on the eye. Later in life, after a bout of cancer, he was confined to his studio and decided to take up collage. During the time Matisse was in his studio he produced cutouts, that we see today as amazing collages.

This art history video is ideal for school children and their teachers, beginners and those interested in art history.
