Henri Matisse Grand Palais Lithograph Poster
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
