(HENRI MATISSE)

Legendary and beloved master-painter HENRI MATISSE is considered to be one of FRANCE's all-time greatest artists. Matisse profoundly influenced his younger friend, PABLO PICASSO, as well as many other artists both during and well after his lifetime, right up to the present day. His work hangs in both museums and private collections around the globe.
Henri Matisse was also the creator of FAUVISM (literally, " Wild Beasts ") a wild, uninhibited style espousing great liberation and joyfulness . Proponents of Fauvism in the early to mid-20th century include ANDRE DERAIN and the two French painter brothers, RAOUL DUFY and JEAN DUFY.
THE PORTRAIT DRAWING

This is an ORIGINAL DRAWING of a young woman with beautiful hair. It is sketched in GRAPHITE ( lead pencil ) on a light-tan/cream paper, blank on the verso.

This is a UNIQUE, ORIGINAL hand-drawn work, NOT a print, litho, or any other form of printed reproduction, we can definitely assure you of this.

The paper-size measures 12 3/4" x 8 3/4" (32 1/2 cm x22 cm). It is currently unframed.

PENCIL-SIGNED : H Matisse , in the lower-right.

Dated: 48 (1948).

PLEASE

In VERY GOOD CONDITION. With just a few little edge-tears and dog-eared corners to the paper but it does not affect the internal, drawn area of the paper at all.

A terrific and UNIQUE hand-drawn in lead pencil PORTRAIT of a LADY. Pencil-signed and dated .
