Cristina Amodeo is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Milan, Italy.

Henri Matisse (1869–1954), one of modern art’s most important figures, was a painter, draftsman, sculptor, and printmaker who began creating paper cutouts in the 1940s.


Praise For Matisse's Garden

'Eight reproductions of Matisse's cut-paper work appear throughout, some on gatefolds, and a brief biography closes out this strong study of an artist's thought processes and growth."

— Publishers Weekly

"In its inventive approach to teaching art history, this book should inspire teachers and students alike to experiment with color, shape and form in the same free and expressive mode as the master."
