French artist Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the best-known painters of the twentieth century. In 2002, a Matisse sculpture sold for $9.2 million, setting a record for the artist. Girl With a Black Cat (1910) is an oil-on-canvas work that showcases Matisse's signature use of vibrant colors. See a gallery of his work through this link.
