Chatting with Henri Matisse

Selected by Modern Art Notes as one of the Best Books of 2013

In 1941 Pierre Courthion conducted an extensive interview with Henri Matisse that was seen at the time as a vital assessment of his career. But just weeks before the book was to come out, Matisse refused its publication. This rich conversation, conducted during the Nazi occupation of France, is published for the first time in this stylish bilingual English and French edition.

"[A] definitive volume of his letters . . . beautifully illustrated and with richly informative and sensible footnotes."

This bracing volume lifts a veil on one of the most towering figures in the history of art. Alex Danchev's crystalline translation of Cézanne's letters includes more than twenty that were previously unpublished and reproduces the beguiling sketches and caricatures with which Cézanne occasionally illustrated his words.
