Overview

The elegant Matisse retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art in the fall of 1992 was the first king-sized retrospective of Matisse's work anywhere in the world for more than twenty years. Appropriately labelled the most beautiful show in the world, this giant new look at Matisse and his pursuit of pleasure was a consummate success. Henri Matisse: A Bio-Bibliography provides the scholar, student, artist, and layperson with an extended primary and secondary bibliography with which to study and enjoy this great artist. These works cover his life, career, oeuvre, and influence on other artists. Though many of the entries are annotated, this is not meant to be a critical guide; rather, it is a way to get to know a great artist through the literature surrounding him and his art.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A comprehensive guide to the study of the great artist (1869-1954), beginning with a brief biographical sketch and a chronology, followed by a primary bibliography and a secondary bibliography divided into sections on life and career, works (oeuvre), influence and mentions, and exhibitions. Brief annotations are provided for entries where titles give incomplete or unclear information about works and their content. Monographs and dissertations are annotated with more regularity than periodical articles. Foreign language titles abound, particularly in French. Annotation c.
