Summary
Born into a famous family, Pierre Matisse grew up immersed in the art world of Paris and the French Riviera, spending time with some of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. The man he knew as his grandfather, legendary artist Henri Matisse, encouraged Pierre from a young age, creating a strong desire in him to become a great artist in his own right. He was crushed and bewildered when, at the outbreak of World War II, his mother suddenly announced to her twelve-year-old son, "You are no longer a Matisse." With no explanation, she changed her son's name and sent him away.So began Pierre's lifelong search to solve the mystery of his true identity. What had happened? Why had his family seemingly rejected him? Who was his real father? Those questions are the intriguing backdrop to this memoir of Pierre's fascinating and adventurous life on three continents. Spanning the insider art world of 1930s Paris, the battles of World War II, the occupation of France by the Nazis, Pierre's involvement with the French resistance, his postwar work restoring art and historical monuments, and his eventual decision to create a new life in North America, The Missing Matisse is a story of intrigue, faith, and drama as one man journeys to discover the truth about who he is--before it's too late
