French artist Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse was born in 1869. Alongside Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp he helped redefine modern art in the 20th century. Perhaps best known to the general public as a painter, he also worked in sculpture and collage. With failing health and bed bound late in life he turned to cut paper collage. While most would be familiar with his cover for his own book of paper collages Jazz, it is interesting to note that Matisse frequently designed covers for other authors and magazines as well.
