This article is about Matisse’s interest in Japanese and Chinese art, two artistic traditions that had a significant impact on his artistic thinking at the beginning and the end of his career, respectively. It analyzes the importance of Far-Eastern art and theory for Matisse’s modernism against the backdrop of the transformation (and ultimate decline) of Japonisme in the early twentieth century and the attendant revival of interest in Chinese art.
