Ann Dumas, Jack Flam, Remi Labrusse. Matisse's ancestors had been weavers for generations: textiles, a key to his visual imagination, were in his blood. Although he was to outgrow every other influence, textiles retained their power for him throughout his life. His studio in Nice was a treasure house of exotic Persian carpets, delicate Arab embroideries, richly hued African wall hangings, and any number of colourful cushions, curtains, costumes, patterned screens and backcloths.

Although he was to outgrow every other influence, textiles retained their power for him throughout his life.

Matisse and Textiles For generations Matisse's family had been involved in the textile industry in northern France. He had an innate appreciation for textiles and was an avid collector of fabrics, from his early days as a poor art student in Paris to the latter years of his life, when his Nice studio overflowed with exotic costumes and wall hangings. Used traditionally at first, as mere background elements in his compositions, textiles soon became the springboard for his radical experiments with perspective and an art based on decorative patterning and pure harmonies of color and line

Product Description Henri Matisse's ancestors had been weavers for generations: textiles, a key to his visual imagination, were in his blood. Although he was to outgrow every other influence, textiles retained their power for him throughout his life. His studio in Nice was a treasure house of exotic Persian carpets, delicate Arab embroideries, richly hued African wall hangings, and any number of colorful cushions, curtains, costumes, patterned screens, and backcloths. This sumptuously illustrated book, which accompanies a groundbreaking exhibition at the Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis; the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, explores for the first time Matisse's relationship with the textiles that surrounded him from his earliest days. Charting how the fabrics he painted became the very fabric of his painting, the authors examine the ways in which one of the greatest pioneers in modern art history used what he called his "working library" of textiles to furnish, order, and compose his extraordinary works of art. AUTHOR BIO: Ann Dumas is an independent exhibition curator. Jack Flam is professor of art and art history at Brooklyn College and New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. Rémi Labrusse is professor of contemporary art history at the Université de Picardie, Amiens. Hilary Spurling is working on the second volume of a biography of Matisse. Dominique Szymusiak is director of the Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis.

I did not get to see this exhibit when it was at the Met in New York as I had recently moved out of New York! I have always been enchanted with the way Matisse incorporates his love of pattern and color in textiles, whether it be in his depictions of garments, carpets, drapes, tablecloths or wallpaper. This book (which is actually the exhibit catalog) provides a fantastic focus on his personal collection of textiles used as direct inspiration for some of his art. Beautiful photographs from his life and gorgeous sketches and reproductions of paintings showing a direct connection to specific textiles and how they show up in multiple paintings in differing ways. The book also demonstrates how key sketching from the live model was in contributing to the unique quality and feeling of his beloved art.

good book
  • Qutalan
This book is absolutely beautiful. I have always loved and been fascinated by Matisse and his use of textiles and glorious colors in his paintings, and this book gives an excellent background and family history on his use of textiles and his life-long love for fabrics and design, even during times when he was experiencing creative blocks. I keep this beautiful book on my coffee table!

The cover book have a damage (a cut). Inside the book everything is ok

This is a marvelous resource book, especially for fiber artists and those who enjoy reading careful research into specific aspects of an artist's work. It gives detailed information about the influence of textiles on his paintings, including his use of textile techniques: actual textiles from his personal collection as sources for painting Odalisque costumes and background, combining colors, and creating cutouts.

The life of Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse is a remarkable one - one of the co-authors, Hilary Spurling, has spent years in careful and caring research to bring to life in pages this master of painting, having just published the second volume of her biography of him. Matisse is one of the giants of modern art; Picasso long considered him is only true rival.

This particular book is a great companion to that biographical set. In addition to Spurling, the authors include Ann Dumas (independent curator), Jack Flam (art professor in New York), Rémi Labrusse (contemporary art professor at the Université de Picardie), and Dominique Szymusiak (director of the Musée Matisse). They bring a wealth of experience and knowledge about Matisse to this project.

This book is lavishly and loving illustrated, and follows the exhibitions at the Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis; the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. There are nearly 200 full-colour illustrations here. Colour is of vital importance, since this is primary in the art work of Matisse.

Matisse's family had a strong background in textiles, and this is a recurring theme in the artwork of Matisse. He no doubt developed a sensitivity to colour and texture very early in life from this influence. Matisse kept an extensive collection of textile samples and fragments, and was surrounded by carpets, curtains, wallpapers, upholstery, and many other forms of textile inspirations from many different cultural settings.

This is gorgeous book on a beautiful theme.

This volume is the catalogue for a truly unusual show co-sponsored by the Royal Academy in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. For once, a team of art specialists has put together a Matisse exhibition which is more than a paean to this artist's use of color and a slapped-together collection of pretty pictures. While all of the paintings on display here are quite familiar to audiences as the bulk of them have been included in every Matisse show for the past 15 years, they have been given a new context by presenting them with examples of fabrics (both decorative and dress) from Matisse's personal collection. The offspring of weavers, Matisse possessed an appreciation for pattern and textiles from his earliest years. Fabrics were some of his favorite props, necessary for him to create the orientalist, hothouse atmosphere of the 1920s "Nice period" paintings, the chic calligraphy of his 1930s work, and the simplicity and repetition of his 1940s cut-outs. While the exhibition itself was not a large one, this book has got to be one of the most beautiful catalogues the Metropolitan Museum has ever produced. The stunning design interweaves full-color images of individual textiles with "their" respective paintings...It is a fascinating experience to see the same purple striped turkish robe or peasant blouse transformed into a dazzling pattern on several different models in paintings and drawings separated by years in time. The standard of color reproduction here is exemplary - Matisse's brilliant colors literally jump off of the page and into your eyes! A necessary addition to any art library for the design and quality of illustration alone...
