Brian Rolincik-Henri Matisse

  1. 1. -Artist Project-Henri Matisse<br />By Brian Rolincik<br />
  2. 2. Vital Statistics<br />Born in Le Chateau France on Dec. 31, 1856<br />Died on Nov. 3, 1954<br />Considered one of the greatest painters of the 20th Century<br />
  3. 3. Personal Background<br />Gustave Moreau had been his second teacher in art<br />The post-impressionist style of Paul Cézanne, Paul Signac, and Henri-Edmund Cross also influenced Matisse <br />Early 1941 he underwent surgery for duodenal cancer<br />Because of this he was bedridden for the majority of a 2 year span, during which he found a less physically straining way to create art by brightly painting pieces of paper, then cutting and collaging them<br />
  4. 4. Key Historical Events<br />WWII caused him to worry about what was to become of his paintings in Russia and in occupied France<br />In 1943, there was a threat of an allied bombardment of his current residence of Nice, France<br />This caused him to move to the Villa Le Rêve which is on the outside of Vence, France<br />His time in this home was very important because he completed paintings and other important works <br />
  5. 5. Influence of the Art World<br />Involved in the fauvism movement<br />“Les Fauves” means “Wild Beasts”<br />This was a derogatory name given to artists who exhibited their work together in Paris, in 1905.<br />The fauvists’ style went against the normal style of the time<br />A couple of his paintings in 1916 and 1917 were also influenced by cubism<br />
  6. 6. Stylistic Traits<br />Includes flowing movement and elasticity of the human body<br />In many paintings Matisse depicts little to no facial expression<br />Bright and vibrant colors are further emphasized by lack of light and shadow<br />Most pieces have no immediate meaning, leading one to think about possible symbolisms<br />
  7. 7. Stylistic Traits Example Art #1<br />Includes flowing movement and elasticity of the human body<br />This painting leaves out the subjects’ expressions<br />Vibrant colors, which are mostly solid<br />A simple scene with no apparent meaning <br />Dance II (1910)<br />
  8. 8. Stylistic Traits Example Art #2<br />Shape of the subject’s body is one of the main points in this piece<br />Lack of any facial features<br />Only two prominent solid colors<br />Vague situation being depicted<br />Blue Nude IV (1952)<br />
  9. 9. Stylistic Traits Example Art #3<br />Includes a lot of curves when forming the subject<br />Lack of facial features <br />Simple solid colors with absolutely no accent<br />Scene causes one to think<br />Icarus (1947)<br />
  10. 10. Stylistic Traits of My Original Artwork<br />Title: Enlightenment II (2010)<br />Many flowing lines and shapes create the subject and setting<br />The subject has no emotions or expressions depicted on their face<br />The vibrant colors sharply contrast each other<br />Symbolisms lie underneath what is actually depicted<br />
  11. 11. Conclusion<br />During the duration of this project, I have learned…<br />That recreating an artist’s style is much more difficult than it may seem at first<br />Art is fun to create<br />Many artists most likely have amazing artwork that isn’t very well known<br />One of the best strengths of my original artwork is its simplicity<br />One of the weaknesses of my artwork is also its simplicity<br />
