SOPHIE MATISSE

Sophie Matisse is an internationally exhibiting artist represented by Francis Naumann Fine Art in New York. She is the great granddaughter of Henri Matisse and the step-granddaughter of Marcel Duchamp. ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is one of three works by Matisse, exploring chess, colour and history and was hand-painted especially for Purling London.

“This Alice in Wonderland inspired chess set with its candy-like colors were a lot of fun to work with.

Keeping even just an air of playfulness in any battle I think is essential for self-preservation! Some of the best solutions are the simplest, a useful reminder, that even just a little magical thinking can not only save your skin, but also your soul.”
