Matisse - Video Support

Henri Matisse's groundbreaking cut-outs were rendered in the last decade of his life, from about 1943 in Nazi-occupied France, till about 1953, when Snail was completed, and are in London now and will be in New York in October. My post from yesterday regarding the exhibit.

One of the enjoyable aspects of this exhibit is the film support that illuminates the story of Matisse's process in making these great collages. Posted today: Alastair Sooke and A Cut Above the Rest.

Study notes for Henri Matisse.
