Nazi planes were bombing Paris the day a lifelong, more personal war began for Pierre. It was the day he lost his identity.
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.
