Coloring created from the illustration "Le cheval, L'écuyère et le clown" (1947) by Henri Matisse, part of his illustration book Jazz".
Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954) was a French painter, draughtsman, sculptor and printmaker known for his use of color, his fluid and original draughtsmanship.
He was a leading figure in the development of Fauvism and was one of the major figures of the 20th century art.
He was heavily influenced by the work of the Impressionists, but later developed his own unique style characterized by the use of bright, contrasting colors and bold, fluid brushstrokes.
Matisse is considered one of the great colorists of the 20th century and was also a master of cut-outs, a technique he developed later in his career. His work has had a great influence on later generations of artists and continues to inspire many.
