Klein (art history, U. of Missouri, Columbia) surveys the history of Matisse's portraits and their sitters, with attention to the details of the financial transaction or other agreement that caused the painting to be made. An analysis of Matisse's self-portraits is also provided. Klein works chronologically, detailing the artist's developing style, but remains attached to his biography as well, with many quotes about Matisse or his works from contemporary sources. The oversize volume (10x11.75) is well illustrated with b&w and color plates. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

A scholastic look at the portraits of Henri Matisse and some of his contemporaries and inspirations. This book has many plates of paintings, drawings and lithographs. It does contain a fair bit of text to go along with them. Worth it for anyone who is interested.
