This excellently curated show gathers so much of the latter years of Matisse's work in his cut outs , where we can marvel at his mastery of colour, form, and juxtaposition. Famous works like "blue nude "and "snail " reveal the 80 year old artists mind in brilliant unfettered mood; predicting abstraction and the expressions of the later 1950s. As he asked himself - why did he not discover the technique earlier in his career ? This show is a must.
