The book begins in Paris and then moves to the fashionable St. Tropez, the fishing village of Collioure, chic Nice, the medieval refuge of Vence, and luxurious Cimiez. In each location, the author visits the villas and studios where Matisse lived and worked, and explains how his art responded to the palette and ambiance of the local landscape.

CONTEMPLATING CHARACTER: Portrait Drawings and Oil Sketches from Jacques-Louis David to Lucian Freud explores the evolution of portraiture from the end of the 18th century until the present. In contrast to portraiture as the tired flattery of the rich and powerful, the invigorating new movements of Neoclassicism, Romanticism and Realism that took hold of art at the end of the 18th century and into the 19th century were the result of a desire for a sense of "unvarnished truth," and a more honest and gritty incisiveness of depiction emerged. By the 20th century, the hallmark of the portrait was individuality; the sense of "personality" was primary, whether stylistically Post-Impressionist, Expressionist, Surrealist, or Realist. The book is divided into seven sections: ARTIST SELF-PORTRAITS, including Gustave Dore, Richard ("Mad") Dadd, Adolf von Menzel, Roderic O'Conor, Antonio Mancini, Edouard Vuillard, Leon Spillaert , Frank Brangwyn, Dora Maar, David Levine, and Alfred Hitchcock PORTRAITS OF ARTISTS, including portraits of Jacques-Louis David by Delafontaine and J.
