25 October 2019 – 15 March 2020, Lady Lever Art Gallery
This autumn, an exhibition by Henri Matisse (1869-1954), one of the 20th-century’s most influential artists, is opening at the Lady Lever Art Gallery as part of Wirral Year of Culture.
Matisse: Drawing with Scissors will feature 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 (pictured) and the Blue Nudes.
Celebrated for their extraordinary richness and luminosity of colour, Matisse’s vibrant cut-outs were the final triumph of his career.
Matisse: Drawing with Scissors is a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from the Southbank Centre.
