31st December Henri Matisse (1869 - 1954)

Henri Matisse was a French artist who was known for his use of colour and fluid lines. Just like the artists Monet and Picasso there are so many picture book resources on Matisse that are suitable for very young children.
In my library there are three board books:• Matisse for Kids by Margaret Hyde
A Magical Day With Matisse by Julie Merberg and Suzanne Bober
Matisse: Dance For Joy by Susan Goldman Rubin
There are books that introduce his techniques and give biographical details such as:
Henri Matisse: Drawing With Scissors by Jane O'Connor and Jessie Hartland
Matisse: The King of Colour by Laurence Anholt
Matisse: Cut-Out Fun With Matisse by Nina Hollein (Adventures in Art)
And there are fun stories such as :
A Bird or Two: A Story About Matisse by Bijou LeTord
When Pigasso Met Mootisse by Nina Laden
