A Hayward Touring Exhibition from the South Bank Centre, London. This exhibition features 35 lithographic reproductions of the famous cut-outs that Matisse produced in the last four years of his life, when confined to his bed. It includes many of his iconic images, such as The Snail and the Blue Nudes.

About

The French painter, sculptor and designer, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the 20th Century’s most influential artists. His vibrant works are celebrated for their extraordinary richness and luminosity of colour and his spectacular paper cut-outs were his final triumph.

‘There is no gap between my earlier pictures and my cut-outs’, Matisse wrote; ‘I have only reached a form reduced to the essential through greater absoluteness and greater abstraction’.
