Though he was famous for his paintings and sculptures, Matisse (1869-1954) was also a prolific printmaker, producing over 800 individual prints (typically in editions of 25 to 50) from 1900 to 1954. He moved freely between various printmaking techniques and used printmaking as an extension of his drawing style and process. The imagery he created often was repeated forms of reclining nudes, portraits or dancing bodies drawn with elegant and energetic contour lines. Matisse found printmaking to be an exciting medium that allowed innovation while also enabling him to produce works in multiples to satisfy the increasing demand for his art. The wide dissemination and demand for Matisse's printed work undoubtedly contributed immensely to his position as a preeminent artist of the 20th century.
