This piece is an original lithograph after one of the last cut-outs Matisse made. Although Matisse began working in this medium out of necessity due to health concerns, the resulting works became some of his most well-known and well-regarded pieces. This print, whose title translates to “The Sheaf,” features a collection of colorful leaf formations placed against a white background. This work exemplifies Matisse’s goal of producing “an art of balance, purity, and serenity.”
Matisse is well-regarded as the master of color of the 20th century. He was a versatile artist who created paintings, sculptures, and cut-outs.
