Emmanuel Chaussade: Henri Matisse
Henri Matisse. Self-Portrait in a Striped T-shirt (1906). From "Statens Museum for Kunst", Copenhagen, Denmark.
I first saw this photo in a class in the early 1970s and, I think, could have bought it for something like $250. But that was as unthinkable then as the price of $12,500 is now. Everything is relative, right? It's still one of my all-time favorites. Maybe just because of the light in Matisse's glasses.

Henri Matisse- one of the most well known artists of our day. His contributions to modern art are huge, with colorful and stylistic tendencies that were considered obnoxious when first viewed. He is one of the Fauves, meaning wild beasts in French. The Fauves believed in freedom of expression in art, and that there shouldn’t be any restrictions to what one could paint. Matisse was a sculptor, draughtsman, printmaker, and painter who pushed the boundaries of art further than they had been before.
