Pierre Matisse

Pierre Matisse

Pierre Henri Matisse

In support of his grandfather’s legacy and the SNOW Gala theme, Pierre H. Matisse, and his family will contribute artwork for the SNOW Gala’s efforts. Born in 1928 and grandson of Henri Matisse, Pierre’s childhood involved the artistic life of Paris and the French Riviera. One is drawn to Pierre’s work because of its intensity, power and depth of colour, however upon closer inspection the drama of the scene plays out until it feels as though you are part of the picture. Pierre’s prolific career spans decades, and Gala Benefactors will have the privilege of bidding on three of Pierre’s original lino cuts, and one special mixed media piece. In addition, one spectacular original cut out, “Circle of Love”, executed in the style of his grandfather, will be offered for Live Auction. Images of the pieces were professionally photographed and submitted by HAS Art Solutions, a US-based International Art Consulting Firm, who has also generously provided framing for “Circle of Love”. Singapore’s premiere framing company, framingangie will be contributing the framing of Pierre’s lino-cuts and mixed media pieces.
