An internationally recognised expert in the European tradition of draughtsmanship, Christopher Lloyd offers rare insights about the technical qualities of Matisse’s drawings. This book traces the evolution of Matisse’s large and varied body of drawings and works on paper, which reflect the artist’s constant desire to express pure emotion in visual terms.


With over 150 illustrations, including archival photographs of Matisse’s studio and the artist at work, this volume concisely covers Matisse’s entire graphic oeuvre.
