Past Event Tate Modern Talk

Curator's talk for Members: Matisse

8 May 2014 at 18.45–19.45

The exhibition is structured chronologically, focusing on the cut-out works created by the artist, from the late 1930s to Matisse's death in 1954, which served as an alternative to painting, overcoming the limitations caused by his ill health. The cut-outs began as a composition tool used by him to resolve layout and compositional issues. As time progressed the cut-outs became works in their own right.

Join curator Flavia Frigeri for a talk on Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs. Flavia maps the trajectory for the cut-outs, shedding light on how and when Matisse started making these works, focusing on some of the key examples in the exhibition.
