About Henri Matisse

Artist Henri Matisse was born in Le Cateau-Cambresis in northern France. Matisse first began painting in 1889, when his mother gave him art supplies during a period of convalescence following an attack of appendicitis. Henri Matisse discovered “a kind of paradise” in painting, and Matisse abandoned his legal career, to the deep disappointment of his father.
