He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, although he rejected the term, preferring to be called a realist.

A master of 20th century Modernism, the artistic career of Henri Matisse (1869-1954) proves his boundless creativity and energy. This seminar presents an overview of Henri Matisse’s life and art, beginning with his powerful Fauvist work. Matisse’s style continued to change and evolve, as we see his subject matter gravitate around the female form, leading to his mature style focusing purely on color and form.
