About This Piece
The Art
Henri Matisse’s “Blue Nude” series, paper cutouts on canvas created at the end of his long and prolific life, represented the culmination of his exploration of abstraction. Along with Pablo Picasso, Matisse (1869 – 1954) dominated 20th century art. Abandoning law studies to pursue art, Matisse was originally considered a Fauvist. His body of work encompassed vast styles, including primitive art, impressionism, sculpture and abstraction, and was distinguished by his visionary and expressive use of brilliant color and ornamentation. Unlike many artists, Matisse was internationally acclaimed during his lifetime, appreciated by collectors and critics, and influencing a younger generation of artists.

This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy. A member of the versatile family of art prints, this high-quality reproduction represents the best of both worlds: quality and affordability. Art prints are created on paper similar to that of a postcard or greeting card using a digital or offset lithography press.

The Artist
Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954), considered to be the 20th century’s most important French painter, communicated joy with expressive colors, striking ornamentation and bold patterns. Matisse, whose mother gave him his first art supplies while he was recovering from an illness, described his discovery of art as “a kind of paradise.” He was originally viewed as a Fauvist, and his early works were exceptionally mature. Influenced by Impressionism and Japanese art, Matisse made color a crucial element of his work, and also experimented with expressive abstraction. When he was nearly 80, Matisse volunteered to decorate the Dominican nuns' chapel at Vence, France. Suffering from anxiety, Matisse found serenity in painting.
