Brilliant color, simple forms, and purity of expression are the
hallmarks of Matisse's work
Henri Matisse (1869-1954) is known not only as one of the most
important French painters of the 20th century but also as co-founder
and leading exponent of Fauvism. His work reflects an ongoing quest
for the expressive power of pure, brilliant colors and simple forms;
as a result, the realistic presentation of nature often retires to a
secondary position.

For Matisse, color did not serve as a tool for the expression of
subjective feelings, but rather became the equivalent of light itself:
it functioned as a pure medium in the creation of an autonomous
pictorial space: "Out of my fruitful work with discovered tones there
must emerge a vital color harmony, a harmony that is analogous to a
musical composition."
