Henri Matisse The Cut-Outs
This is a cool exhibition you may want to pass this around to all people who would be happy to be there. Wait to see the paintings, you will want too. Matisse exhibition at Tate Modern in London, UK is held from 17 April – 7 September 2014. Time running now since April. This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see this landmark exhibition which brings together around 120 works from the period in which Matisse began ‘cutting into colour’. Below is a quote to remember:
"I don't paint things. I only paint the difference between things." Henri Matisse
Matisse stopped painting by 1950 in favor of his paper cutouts. "The Sorrows of the King" is a collage using cut out paper shapes by Henri Matisse from 1952. It was made from paper he had coloured with gouache paint and is mounted on canvas. Its size is 292 x 386 cm. It is his final self-portrait. The Sorrows of the King , now at Pompidou Centre, Paris, is an example of Matisse's final body of works known as the cutouts.
