Modern Masters Episode 2 of 4: Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse
Modern Masters Episode 2 of 4

The second in a four-part series exploring the life and works of the 20th century’s most important artists: Matisse; Picasso; Dali and Warhol.

Journalist Alastair Sooke sets out to discover just how much the artist Henri Matisse has influenced our modern lives.

Tracing the biography of this fascinating artist, and travelling through France, America and Russia, the programme explores some of the painter’s greatest works. Sooke explains why Matisse’s art is considered so great and also looks at how Matisse’s brilliant use of colour and simplification of form continues to inspire illustrators, designers and of course artists today.
