This beautiful and fascinating book follows Henri Matisse on his journeys into the South of France, where he discovered the light and color that saturate his work. Part biography, part travel guide, it explores the painter's private life, artistic evolution, and relationships with the places that inspired him. The book begins in Paris and then moves to fashionable St. Tropez, the fishing village of Collioure, chic Nice, the medieval refuge of Vence, and luxurious Cimiez. In each location, McPhee visits the villas and studios where Matisse lived and works, and explains how his art responded to the palette and ambiance of the local landscape.
Keywords: Nice, Paris, Provence, St Tropez
