Matisse: Drawing with Scissors, a Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre is now on tour until February 2014.

It will feature 35 lithographic reproductions of the famous cut-outs produced in the last four years of Matisse’s life, when he was confined to his bed.

An iconic painter

The French painter, sculptor and designer, Henri Matisse (1869-1954), was one of the 20th century's most influential artists.

Iconic images such as The Snail and the Blue Nudes will be on display as part of the exhibition, which aims to give an overview of the artist’s late work, and to highlight his brilliant use of pure colour and extraordinary richness.
