The exhibition will feature Henri Mattisse's prints from distinct periods of his career, including line drawings and portraits and the vibrant colour of his later work.


This is a rare chance to see a diverse collection of beautifully created, limited edition prints which will also be available to buy.

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was involved with printmaking for more than fifty years. For Matisse printmaking was a personal process, an extension of drawing, and a means of unwinding after long and intense periods of painting. The intimate nature of Matisse’s printmaking is evident in his choice of subjects, which were mostly portraits of friends, family, and fellow artists, as well as images of female figures and nudes. Matisse’s prints were often executed on a small scale with linear fluidity, giving them a sense of immediacy and spontaneity, like pages in a sketchbook. From 1900 until his death in 1954 he completed more than eight hundred etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, linocuts, and monotypes. He is widely recognised as one of the greatest and most diverse printmakers of the 20th century.
