    In the first volume of Spurling’s epic biography, The Unknown Matisse, the painter struggled to establish himself. Here, at age 40, he is “the master.” Using primary documents, mostly letters, Spurling gives us Matisse the man, not just the painter. Outwardly conventional, cushioned in what we would now call a suburban lifestyle, while many of his contemporaries were barely eking out an existence, he was never comfortable with his success. Spurling’s command of her subject is impressive, always with an eye to the intersections of the artistic life and the personal.

    MATISSE THE MASTER: A LIFE OF HENRI MATISSE: THE CONQUEST OF COLOUR: 1909-1954, by Hilary Spurling (Knopf, 2005)
