Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was forced to give up painting completely in the mid-1940s due to a serious illness, he began to work with painted paper and a pair of scissors, cutting out forms at will. These works represented a revolution in modern art. Matisse - a remarkable man who was scarcely able to leave his bed and already considered lost to the world of painting - had thus found a way of outsmarting fate and creating a perfect synthesis of colour and line. Many critics at the time were unstinting in their cruel remarks about the supposed foolishness of an old man. Today, no one would deny that Matisse had found a brilliant means of uniting line and colour that constituted a highpoint in his artistic ambitions.
