Matisse and the Art of Jazz at Albright Knox Art Gallery

Henri Matisse recognized the expressive potential of printmaking, and over the course of his career, he created a large body of graphic works that both informed and rearticulated themes he explored in other mediums. During the 1930s, the artist started making collages as studies for paintings and sculptures by arranging cut paper into decorative configurations. Bedridden during a prolonged convalescence, he began to consider further the possibilities that “painting with scissors” offered—an experiment that endured for the last decade of his life. Jazz is one of the fantastical imaginings to hail from this period and the only book both written and illustrated by Matisse
