The Iridescence of Birds: A Book About Henri Matisse

Henri Matisse never stopped painting; when he was bed-ridden he instructed his assistants on what to do. Relentless, hugely creative Matisse was a master who revolutionised art. His love of painting started very young, when as a small boy he spent hours looking at the changing colours of the water-proof feathers of the pigeon , as it changed colours as the light fell on it. His mother ensured the young boy learnt more about colours in his otherwise drab, cold town.  Written by Patricia MacLachlan  and illustrated by Hadley Hooper.
