The major writings of Henri Matisse (1869-1954), with the exception of the letters, are collected here along with transcriptions of important interviews and broadcasts given at various stages of Matisse's career. Jack Flam provides a biography, a general introduction that addresses the development of Matisse's aesthetic values and theories, and a critical introduction for each text.

Library Journal

Flam here mixes Matisse's own words on art gleaned from ``major writings, interviews, and pedagogical comments'' with his own discussions on Matisse and 52 black-and-white illustrations of Matisse's work. This ``well-documented and clearly written source book will appeal to art specialists and laymen alike'' (LJ 2/1/74).
