Henri Matisse was one of the most important and beloved artists of the twentieth century, rivalled only by his friend - and competitor - Pablo Picasso. This title reveals the origins of Matisse's astonishing talent and provides an insight into his life and work.

Hilary Spurling is the author of numerous biographies, including
Ivy When Young: The Early Life of Ivy Compton-Burnett 1884-1919;
Paul Scott: A Life; a two-volume biography of Matisse,
The Unknown Matisse and
Matisse the Master (also published in the abridged single-volume
Matisse: The Life); and
Burying the Bones. She won the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize and the Duff Cooper Prize for
Ivy When Young, the Whitbread Book of the Year Award for
Matisse the Master, and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for
Burying the Bones. She grew up in Bristol and studied at the University of Oxford. From 1964 to 1970 she was Theatre Critic and Literary Editor of the
Spectator, and since then she has been a regular book reviewer for the
Observer and the
Daily Telegraph. In 2016 she won the Biographers' Club Lifetime Achievement Award.
