1: Henri Matisse | 1869-1954

2: On December 31st 1869, in Le Cateau-Cambrsis, Henri Matisse is born to parents Émile Hippolyte Matisse, a grain merchant, and Anna Heloise Gerard which ran the paints section of her husband's shop. He was born into a moderately wealthy family. His mother and him always had a close relationship through which he sought support and, eventually, she would be the key influence to his color palette choices through her work in her husband's shop. Unfortunately, Matisse's father did not show him the same support that his mother did. So, in 1887, Matisse went to study la, but after 3 years, he quit the firm he was interning in and enrolled in the Academie Julian and began studying art in 1891. | He was a natural. The Salon exhibited 5 paintings in 1896 and later with other Fauvism painters in 1905. Other than his darling mother, a huge influence was Matisse's friend, Pablo Picasso. Henri also had a life outside his work, In 1894, he had a daughter named Marguerite with one of his models, Caroline Joblau. After this, he decided to settle down and, in 1898 he was married Amelie Noellie Parayre at the age of 29. One year later, Matisse had his first child with Noellie, a son named Jean. In 1900, their second son, Pierre, was born. His financial situation varied throughout the years but he died a | well-off man. Henri Matisse passed away at the age of 85 in 1954 of a heart attack after living a full life of pursuing his dreams. | Henri Matisse

4: Henri Toulouse-Lautrec was born near Albi, Tarn on November 26th, 1864. His parents were heirs to their wealth and their titles of Comte Alphonse de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa (his father) and Adle Tapié de Celeyran (his mother). His parents supported his artwork for, after a tragic incident and some genetic disorders due to inbreeding, Toulouse-Lautrec was bedridden for several months and, in that time, he focused mainly on his art. He sustained a leg injury that didn’t heal right. With this injury, his legs stopped growing, leaving the painter at an astounding 5’1” for the rest of his life. His torso was the size of a normal male while his legs were | only 27” tall. He spent most of his life drinking his troubles away and painting prostitutes in local brothels. The only woman Toulouse was suspected to have a sexual relationship with was one of his models, a prostitute named Rosa La Rouge. He was not accepted by the salon until after his death in 1901 while in a local sanatorium. His last words were "Le Vieux Con!" | Henri Toulouse-Lautrec

6: Early Career: His early work consisted of rich blues and reds through oil on canvas. The brush strokes on the horses he painted are very noticeable. | Middle Career: During Toulouse's middle career, he had switched up his medium, using pen, charcoal and even pencil. His color palette widened and his technique became finer. His subjects were then women. | Late Career: Most of his later work was done with either oil or charcoal on board. His subjects had changed to people dancing and his work had gotten simpler, yet finer. | Early Career: Matisse spent most of his time painting fruit with oil ion canvas. His brush strokes are bigger and his color palette is on the dark side, mainly earth tones. | Middle Career: His color palette lightened up and he mainly focused on painting people in this time frame. Everything was a also bit more blended together. | Late Career: Matisse's late career consisted of bright, primary and secondary colors , still using his original medium but on paper cut outs, walls, and canvases. | TOLOUSE | MATISSE

10: AT THE START of the Rattanakosin or Bangkok period in the late eighteenth century, when the capital was finally settled at Bangkok, an elephant kraal was established in Krabi by order of Chao Phraya Nakorn (Noi), the governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which was by then a part of the Thai Kingdom. He sent his vizier, the Phra Palad, to oversee this task, which was to ensure a regular supply of elephants for the larger town. So many followers emigrated in the steps of the Phra Palad that soon Krabi had a large community in three different boroughs: Pakasai, Khlong Pon, and Pak Lao. x | In 1872, King Chulalongkorn graciously elevated these to town status, called Krabi, a word that preserves in its meaning the monkey symbolism of the old standard. The town's first governor was Luang Thep Sena, though it continued a while as a dependency of Nakhon Si Thammarat. This was changed in 1875, when Krabi was raised to a fourth-level town in the old system of Thai government. Administrators then reported directly to the central government in Bangkok, and Krabi's history as a unique entity separated from the other provinces, had begun.
