It will be the first time that original lithographs from one of the leading Modern Masters of 20th Century Art will be exhibiting in Bexhill. Henri Matisse was a French painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and designer. From c.1920 he enjoyed an international reputation as, with Picasso, the foremost painter of his time. He was the supreme master in those trends in 20th century art, which are represented by calligraphic pattern and the abstract use of pure colour. This specially curated exhibition brings together over 50 original lithographs of his ‘Poem Illustrations’ and ‘Paper Cut-outs’ that made up a large body of work in his later years.
