About the Art
Le Bateau (The Boat) is an original lithograph after a paper cut-out by Matisse. Near the end of his life, Matisse began creating works using only scissors and paper. He created abstract compositions and reduced forms down to their simplest elements. Some people consider these later works to be among the artist’s most innovative works.
Henri Matisse is well-regarded as the master of color of the 20th century. He was a versatile artist who created paintings, sculptures, and works on paper.
