Henri Matisse- Painting with Scissors

We’ve been learning about Henri Matisse and how his art evolved from earlier artists before becoming one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th century. Matisse was influenced by the Mediterranean Sea and we recreated an early painting Open Window, Collioure 1905. Then we learnt about his use of paper cut-outs later in his life. We observed one of his iconic pieces 'Icarus' and recreated our version which represent new beginnings. Finally, we looked at one his last pieces called Beasts of the Sea 1950 and created our own version by cutting paper into shapes of waves, shells, seaweed and more.
