French artist Henri Matisse is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists in the modern art world, with his work spanning everything from fauvism to impressionism. Though best known as a painter, Matisse was skilled in many other forms of art, including sculpture and print-making, and even venturing into architecture and interior design. In his later years, his works became increasingly abstract and modernist, and with the addition of bold, colorful shapes and collages, Henri Matisse can be seen to have one of the most diverse artistic portfolios of the 19th and 20th centuries.
