See Matisse's Drawing with Scissors cut-outs

Industry News in TheGallery – Published 18th Jul 17

Matisse: Drawing with Scissors: Late Works 1950-1954, features 35 prints from the famous cut-outs collection.

The stunning show is a Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre, London, and is showing in TheGallery until the 16th August 2017.

Henri Matisse, the French painter, sculptor and designer, was famous for his vibrant works which were celebrated for their extraordinary richness and iridescent qualities.

Matisse worked well into his eighties, and his works in this collection feature those from the last four years of his life, when the artist was confined to his bed. He adapted his technique, cutting blocks of painted colour, rather than painting expressively as he had done in his earlier years.

The exhibition includes many of the artist’s iconic images, such as the Blue Nudes and The Snail.
