Peter Scott Lecture - Matisse: The Cut Outs

Peter Scott presents a special lecture to accompany the opening of the exhibition in the Robert Phillips Gallery Matisse - Drawing with Scissors
Largely because of growing ill health, Henri Matisse (1869-1954), late in his career, gave up easel painting and developed a new technique of cutting and gluing coloured paper to make dynamic, almost sculptural, forms. The result was a series of bold designs, many of which were templates for books, stained glass, textiles and ceramics. Others were intended as art works in their own right, which he prepared by pasting them on the walls of his studio, calling them his “little garden”.
