Popular collection of 34 sensual, intimate sketches and drawings. This collection underlines the sensuality of the most intimate drawings or paintings by Henri Matisse (1869-1954), one of the most important artists of Classical Modernism with Pablo Picasso. Along with André Derain, he is regarded as a pioneer and main representative of Fauvism, which propagated the detachment from Impressionism and the first artistic movement of the 20th century.

Another special feature is the high-quality design of the binding, which has the shape of a sketchbook and is closed with a red band.

Text: English, German.

Popular collection of 56 sensual, intimate sketches and drawings. This collection underlines the sensuality of the most intimate drawings and paintings from Gustav Klimt (1862-1918). His works were controversial at the time, and some are still provocative today. What makes this edition very special is its design in the shape of a sketchbook that is closed with a red ribbon.
