Description:
When Henri Matisse was forced to give up painting in the mid-1940s due to serious illness, he began to work with painted paper and a pair of scissors, 'carving into colour' to create bright, bold patterns and forms. Though many critics at the time were unstinting in their cruel remarks about the supposed foolishness of an old man, the work, termed gouaches decoupees, in fact represented a milestone in modern art. This book includes rich image reproductions from many of Matisse's most celebrated cut-outs, and a detailed biography for context of the artist's life and work.
