Towards the end of his life, Henri Matisse, was plagued by physical ailments. Bouts of cancer and remedial surgery left the great artist wheelchair bound in his final years. While painting and sculpting proved too taxing on his weakened body, Matisse turned to gouaches découpés, or cut paper collages. With the aid of studio assistants he would “paint with scissors,” resulting in a final creative flourishing for the Fauvist master. Present here are two lithographs after a cut-out by Matisse, printed in a 1954 edition of ‘XXe Siècle,’ the French art review journal.
Printed and published Gualtieri di San Lazzaro, Paris

Henri Matisse (French, 1869-1954) is primarily known as the founder of the Fauvist movement, a result of Impressionism, whose works fundamentally altered the course of Modern Art in the late 20th Century. Innovative in his original treatment of the human figure and an expressive use of color, Matisse forged his own pictorial language. Matisse's career can be divided into several stylistic periods, but he remained focused on discovering “the essential character of things” through his art.
