[Read by Jean Brassard]

Born into a famous family of artists, Pierre Matisse grew up immersed in the artistic life of Paris. The man he knew as his grandfather, legendary artist Henri Matisse, gave him his first painting lesson. 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. Spanning the insider art world of the 1930s, World War II, and his 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 the Author:

Pierre Henri Matisse was born in Paris in 1928. Brought up as the grandson of Henri Matisse, Pierre spent his childhood among some of the most famous artists of the century, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. During World War II, Pierre and his father, Jean Matisse, were heavily involved in French underground activities, wanted by the Nazis for their efforts in aiding the British spies and saboteurs. When the war ended, Pierre worked in the restoration of the art and historical monuments damaged by the war in France. Now a citizen of the United States, he is an artist who has given or created commissioned pieces to help organizations such as Project Hope, the American Red Cross, numerous children's hospitals, and many others.
