Product Detail

‘Painting with scissors’ is how Henri Matisse (1869–1954) described his cut-outs. Produced toward the end of his life, once confined to a wheelchair, these bursts of brilliant colour and form marked a remarkable period in his practice, cutting and pasting pieces of coloured paper into gouaches découpées of birds, flora and the figure. Part of the Taschen Basic Art series, this book chronicles Matisse’s enduring interest in collage, colour, and form, which has influenced artists and designers for generations. Written by Gilles Néret, it features a concise biography and high-quality, full-colour imagery.
