Henri Matisse created a series of stunning paper cutouts, arranged them into compositions, and added a text in his own handwriting to produce a unique work of art that has been referred to as "the visual counterpart of jazz music".

This volume reproduces the complete composition of Jazz, as originally published in 1947. The accompanying text retraces the fascinating story of the work's background, the significance of the colors and images, and looks at the importance of Matisse's handwritten pages as a counterpoint to the cut-outs.

From the Inside Flap:

First published in 1947, Henri Matisse's collection of paper cutouts represented a culmination of the artist's striving to combine his love of form and colour. To create Jazz, Matisse carefully arranged twenty cut-outs as compositions. Like the musical genre they celebrate, the works are at once spontaneous and unified, improvisational yet clearly orchestrated. Serving as a complement to these blasts of color are messages, in Matisse's own handwriting, of his ideas and inspirations.

About the Author:

The Artist:

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was the principal artist of the Fauve group and one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. His style is characterized by flat patterns with aravesques, flowered backgrounds, and his use of brilliant and pure colors either juxtaposed or seperated only by thin white lines or contours. Matisse's works are to be found in nearly every museum of modern art throughout the world.
