About this book:
Finely printed and extensively illustrated volume presenting nearly all of Matisse’s paintings and illustrated books produced from 1939 – 1943. This volume accompanies Lydia Delectorskava’s earlier volume “L’apparent Facilite” (“With Apparent Ease”) which documented paintings from 1935 – 1939.
Delectorskava worked for Matisse for over 20 years prior to his death in 1954. She gives a detailed description of his life, including handwritten letters as well of photos of interiors, models, and Matisse himself.
