Pierre Schneider dedicated fourteen years to the creation of his magisterial study of Matisse and his work. He is widely regarded as the world's leading expert on the artist.
After collaborating on "Temps Modernes" of Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, "Critique "of Georges Bataille, and "Cahiers du Sud," Schneider worked with the critic and art historian Georges Duthuit, son-in-law of Matisse, for approximately ten years.
Author of numerous works on aesthetics and the history of art, Schneider also contributed regularly to such important journals as "Artnews," "Art in America," "Vogue," "Encounter," and the "Burlington Magazine." He has been the advisor and organizer of large Matisse exhibitions, most notably the Matisse Centennial Exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris in 1970.
