Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954), the supreme colorist of the 20th century rejected classical representation in favor of utilizing flat areas of vivid color and uneven smears of paint in his portraits, landscapes, and still lifes—the result of an early interest in exotic fabrics and brightly patterned textiles. Matisse’s use of unbridled color changed how we see the world.
