This original lithograph is done after one of Matisse’s finest cut-outs. Although Matisse began making cut-outs due to health complications, they became some of his most well-known and well-regarded works. In this piece floral forms and pomegranates float against a white background. The two figures in blue represent a parakeet and a mermaid, which the title translates to. The original cut-out occupies a prominent place in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
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.
