Great-granddaughter of the world famous Henri Matisse, Sophie Matisse is a French-American artist from Cambridge, Massachusetts. After a brief stint at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Sophie decided to follow in her great grandfather's foot steps by attending the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Here she faced pressure to uphold her family's artistic reputation as well as the added difficulty of being taught in French. Eventually, Matisse was asked to leave but she did not let that stop her from reaching the heights of her artistic career.
In the 1990's Matisse set up shop in New York City, where she eventually began to garner attention for her modern interpretations of famous historical artworks. In 2002, Matisse had her first solo exhibitions at the gallery known as Francis Naumann Fine Art. Matisse has since continued to taste success and recognition on a national and global scale.
