Matisse Lithograph


Framed Henri Matisse lithograph titled: One Thousand and One Nights* (Juin '50), a more rare find.


H: 16” L: 36”


*As painting became more difficult for Matisse he focused on the sleek and stylized paper cutouts he had first started experimenting with in the 1930s, using scissors to create the shapes and color that he could no longer render directly on canvas. This piece was one of the most beloved pieces Matisse made during those last few years which is an abstract take on “One Thousand and One Nights,”  The piece goes on rare view at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh. The museum acquired the work in the 1970s but exhibits it only occasionally because of its extreme sensitivity to light.
