Late Works 1950 – 1954

An exhibition of lithographic reproductions from the famous paper cut-outs
Saturday 11 January – Sunday 9 February | Free entry
The French painter, sculptor and designer, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. His vibrant works are celebrated for their extraordinary richness and luminosity of colour. This exhibition features 35 lithographic prints of his famous paper cut-outs, produced in the last four years of his life, when the artist was confined to his bed. It includes many of his iconic images, such as ‘The Snail’ and the ‘Blue Nudes’.
Matisse continued creating highly original works into his eighties. For his cut-outs he used paper hand-painted with gouache, laid down in abstract or figurative patterns. The lithographic reproductions in this exhibition are taken from a special double issue of Verve, a review of art and literature, published by Tériade, a major publisher of fine art books in 1958.
We are delighted to host this touring exhibition and hope you will visit and enjoy the opportunity to see this stunning collection in Stroud.
