The Art of Healing With Color:

Henri Mattise

The artist was born in Le Cateau-CambrésisFrance. 

He often used Mediterranean themes in his vigorous expression of color, in pursuit of revitalizing and restoring the human mind.


What I dream of is an art of balance, purity, and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter… a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue. 
– Henri Matisse
