Matisse, Henri

proper noun

  • (1869–1954), French painter and sculptor; full name Henri Emile Benoît Matisse. His use of non-naturalistic colour led him to be regarded as a leader of the Fauvists. His later painting and sculpture displays a trend towards formal simplification and abstraction, and includes large figure compositions and abstracts made from cut-out coloured paper.
