Covering both Matisse's life and several art movements, I found this book interesting and informative. As a colorblind person, I appreciated Blum's descriptions of the paintings and her analysis of them - especially the more abstract ones. I love art, but find it difficult to see and/or understand at times. Blum's writing made Matisse's art accessible.
