What Inspires Us: Henri Matisse

Posted by The Sill on

“Creativity takes courage.” ~Henri Matisse 

Nature’s beauty has been an enduring subject for artists. For centuries they have captured plant life across all mediums and movements. This body of work, in turn, inspires us at The Sill. 

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was a French artist, who established a style based on flat, brilliant color, producing some of the boldest images of his time. While his subject matter varied throughout his prolific career, he is known to have focused on the plant world more intensely than perhaps any other artist of the 20th century.
