Matisse: Drawing with Scissors

25 October 2019 to 15 March 2020

Matisse: Drawing with Scissors features 35 posthumous prints of the famous cut-outs that the artist produced in the last four years of his life, when confined to his bed, including many of his iconic images, such as The Snail and the Blue Nudes

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 and his spectacular paper cut-outs were his final triumph.

Matisse: Drawing with Scissors is a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from the Southbank Centre.
