About the Art

This is an original lithograph after a Matisse paper cut-out. This piece is considered to be the artist’s last self-portrait; he represents himself as the central black form. This work also references a painting by Rembrandt depicting David playing the harp before King Saul. Matisse’s final cut-outs are considered to be among the artist’s finest 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.
