art on a thursday

The Snail by Henri Matisse.

After 1948 Matisse was prevented from painting by ill health but, although confined to bed, he produced a number of works known as gouaches découpées. These were made by cutting or tearing shapes from paper which had been painted with gouache.

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs opens at Tate Modern later this month. I can't wait!
