The catalogue for the Tate's exhibition Henri-Matisse: The Cut-Outs surveys Matisse's late collages, including Jazz and the Vence chapel. Works from small-scale collages to frand mural projects are not only illustrated in their final forms but also seen in progres in numerous studio photographs. Fold-out pages give an idea of teh expansive nature of The Parakeet and teh Mermaid, 1952, and The Swimming Pool, 1952, at 16m wide. A technical summary of the cut-outs explains the range of papers used, the paint used to colour the sheets and the method of composition. (Alexander Adams The Art Newspaper)

Vibrant designs of apparent simplicity spooling from a master's hands in the last decade of his life, each one a tableau of luminosity and power. (The Economist)
In the late 1940s, suffering from ill health, the French artist Henri Matisse retired his paintbrush. A spirit as creative as his, however, was not to be restrained. (Samuel Cochran Architectural Digest)

There's also a ton of text. I appreciate that as an academic, but I really wanted a book that was equally about the art *and* the process/history, and the Taschen book felt more like a true art book. I'm actually a little surprised that this is an exhibit catalog- it feels more like an academic book to me.
This is by no means a terrible book, it's just not as good as the Taschen one in terms of image quality and size.

This is a very beautiful book containing great information about this period of Matisse's life. It is filled with wonderful, colored illustrations of his "cut-out" period. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Gayle McInnis
