Henri Matisse Grand Palais Lithograph Poster

This vibrant original Matisse lithograph exhibition poster on wove paper.
Published in 1970 on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition of artworks by Matisse at the Grand Palais in Paris.

During the last decade of his life Henri Matisse deployed two simple materials—white paper and gouache—to create works of wide-ranging colour and complexity. An unorthodox implement, a pair of scissors, was the tool Matisse used to transform paint and paper into a world of plants, animals, figures, and shapes.

Despite the flatness of paper, the cut-outs reflect Matisse’s earlier sculptures in their tangible, relief-like quality, especially the sense of volume created by the overlapping of the cut-outs
