Matisse began his career as a painter, and then moved on to sculpture, printmaking, and other forms of art. He was a prolific artist, with over 1,000 works attributed to him, and he is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Matisse's work was both figurative and abstract, and he was a master of color, composition, and line.
