Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) was born into a family of weavers and was trained as a lawyer before turning to art in his twenties. His youthful exposure to textiles helped shape his love of color and texture. Although his early artwork paid homage to influences such as Paul Cezanné and Edward Manet, Matisse was a modernist through and through and spent most of his career experimenting with diverse media, techniques, and styles. He was a draftsman, printmaker, and sculptor but is best known as a painter. Some of his most acclaimed paintings were created in the early 1900s, when he found his place at the leading edge of the Fauvism movement. Matisse is now widely considered to be the supreme colorist of the 20th century.

Lots of fun - can be finished in a long day!
Although the puzzle is deceptively challenging: the purple all looks the same, the grays appear nearly identical, this is such a well-crafted and beautiful puzzle.
Beautiful image but wish pieces stayed together more snugly.
This was a challenge, but I stuck with it after paying $25. Love the matte finish and weird little heads on the pieces. Recommend for people with patience!
