Henri Matisse was born on December 31, 1869 in northern France. Henri traveled to Paris to study law. In 1889 he returned home to work in a law office as a clerk. It was around this time that he got sick an needed surgery. It was going to take a long time for him to get better so his mother gave him a paint set. It was then, at the age of 21, that Matisse discovered painting and decided to become an artist. After attending art school, he started to paint professionally. He created very bright colored, abstract paintings and collages.
He would paint with colors that weren’t natural to real life!
By the 1940’s Matisse started to mix together painting and collaging. He would say that he would “paint with his scissors”
We’re going to mix together painting and collaging just like Matisse!
