'Henri Matisse. The Cut-Outs'

This unique catalogue accompanies the 'once in a lifetime' exhibition ‘Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs’ at the Tate Modern, London and Museum of Modern Art, New York. It is fully illustrated in colour throughout and includes many photographs of Matisse in his studio; some of which are previously unpublished. 

Henri Matisse (1869–1954) is one of the leading figures of modern art. His unparalleled cut-outs are among the most significant of any artist’s late works. When ill health first prevented Matisse from painting, he began to cut into painted paper with scissors as his primary technique to make maquettes for a number of commissions, from books and stained glass window designs to tapestries and ceramics. 

Taking the form of a ‘studio diary’, this re-examines the cut-outs in terms of the methods and materials that Matisse used, and looks at the tensions in the works between finish and process; fine art and decoration; contemplation and utility; and drawing and colour.

Edited by Karl Buchberg, Nicholas Cullinan and Jodi Hauptman. With contributions by Samantha Friedman and Flavia Frigeri.
