    Henri Matisse (1869-1954)
    One of the most prominent artists of the 20th century, painter Henri Matisse is best known as a founding member of the Fauvist movement, along with his modernist innovation in painting and sculpture. Born in France, Matisse attended law school before studying art at the Académie Julian and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. While studying the Impressionists, he created increasingly experimental works, becoming familiar with the artistic discourse at the turn of the century. Attuned to African and “primitive” art, Matisse began painting using bold colors in broad, flat applications of paint with bold outlines, which developed into his mature Fauvist style in the mid-1900s. He exhibited his work at the Salon des Indépendants and the provocative 1913 Armory Show in New York, and his work was sought after early on by collectors including the famed Gertrude Stein. Held in high critical regard during his lifetime, a retrospective of Matisse’s work opened in 1951 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, traveling all over the United States. In 1952, the Musée Matisse opened in Matisse’s French hometown of Le Cateau-Cambrésis, two years before the artist’s death in 1954.

    Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008)
    Robert Rauschenberg was born under the name Milton Ernest Rauschenberg in Port Arthur, Texas in 1925. In 1948 he studied with Josef Albers at the Black Mountain College, and from 1949 to 1952 at the Art Students League in New York, where he met Cy Twombly, amongst others. Rauschenberg is one of the pioneers of Pop Art. He gained fame in the 1950s with his so called ‘Combines’, sculptural collages in which non-traditional materials such as found objects were processed into innovative works, later also integrating photographs. Rauschenberg was not only a painter but also a sculptor and graphic artist who united various artistic disciplines in his oeuvre. In 1993 he received the National Medal of Arts. In 1995 he was honored with the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. The artist is an internationally established representative of American Pop Art. Already in the 1960s extensive retrospectives were dedicated to him. His works have been exhibited in major museums, such as the MoMA and Guggenheim Museum in New York. Rauschenberg lived in New York City and on Capriva Island, Florida until his death in the year 2008. (msc)
