    • He was married twice….firstly with the model Caroline Joblau with whom he had a daughter, Marguerite. Then in 1898 he married Amélie Noellie Parayre; the two raised Marguerite together and had two sons, Jean and Pierre. Marguerite and Amélie often modelled for him. Neither were Orientals but oriental motifs were often used in his artworks. He visited Morocco and was inspired it.

  1. Matisse loved complimentary colors expecially with his Fauvism. Yes he was very much into understanding color both in a scientific and emotional way. Great colorist. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Robert
