Matisse is a famous French painter in the 20th century, the founder and main representative of Fauvism, and his creative style is unique. Matisse's creation is inspired by different styles of art, from which he constantly absorbs experience and nutrients, so that his paintings form a unique style and enrich the deep connotation of Matisse's painting art. This article attempts to analyze Matisse's paintings from the relationship between Matisse and African art, Islamic art, Chinese art and Japanese ukiyo-e art, so as to understand Matisse's unique painting style in different periods.
