After undergoing surgery for abdominal cancer in 1941 at aged 71 that left him weak, mostly bedridden and unable to paint, Henri Matisse adapted to his changed circumstances and developed a less physically demanding way of making art.
For the last decade of his life, Matisse concentrated on cutting out shapes from brightly painted paper and arranging these colorful pieces in lively, vibrant ways.
Alastair Sooke's book, Henri Matisse: A Second Life, documents this period in Matisse's life and is shown here with Panel with Mask, a paper cut-out work from 1947.
We were lucky enough to see this piece in person last weekend at the exhibition, Matisse in the Studio, currently at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston until July 9th.
The accompanying note for Panel with Mask said that Matisse..."pinned the shapes to the wall of his studio in Nice, where he lived surrounded by his work. He referred to his studio as 'a little garden all around me where I can walk.' Elements were moved and adjusted until Matisse found a balance and rhythm he liked. This work retains the fresh three-dimensionality of cut-outs in Matisse's studio, which were only lightly attached to a paper ground."
Many thanks to my teenage son for holding up this book without complaint in the very crowded exhibition 😊.

Another painting by American artist William McGregor Paxton, who was born on this day in 1869. (And yet more Asian influences, too. The sitting model's costume appears to be a traditional Chinese women's robe from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911.) And did every 19thc artist have a Japanese screen in his studio?)

'Spring' and 'Rising Moon' by Arthur Dove, seen yesterday at @mfaboston When I first saw the titles I thought I was looking at the season Spring. It took me a while to see the spring. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #arthurdove #mfaboston

I might empty my bank account and buy that boy with a pipe #imight #mfaboston

Ruminating on our visit to the new Matisse show at the @mfaboston yesterday. I love how this show brings together a mix of works and exhibits them with the objects Matisse collected and used in his work. (Swipe for more pics--sorry I had to crop to square for these)
I especially love how he draws vessels, so loose yet still capturing their details. And all the pattern 💕
From the MFA website: "Matisse in the Studio is the first major international exhibition to examine the roles that objects from the artist’s personal collection played in his art, demonstrating their profound influence on his creative choices. Henri Matisse (1869–1954) believed that these objects were instrumental, serving both as inspiration and as a material extension of his working process. In 1951, he described them as actors: “A good actor can have a part in ten different plays; an object can play a role in ten different pictures.” The exhibition presents a selection of major works by Matisse from different periods of his career—including approximately 34 paintings, 26 drawings, 11 bronzes, seven cut-outs and three prints, and an illustrated book. The artworks are showcased alongside about 39 objects that the artist kept in his studios—many on loan from the Musée Matisse, Nice, as well as private collections—and publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time. They include a pewter jug, a chocolate maker given as a wedding present and an Andalusian vase found in Spain, as well as textiles, sculptures and masks from the various Islamic, Asian and African traditions that Matisse admired.

#latergram from MFA-Boston. Because sometimes you need time to reflect and absorb all the pieces you've seen. Of course, if it's me, that requires a good cup of coffee. 😘 #mfaboston

I really enjoy looking at the architecture in #boston and how my shapes can become a city themselves. #massart #ceramics #mfaboston

One of the many dancers from the OrigiNation Cultural Arts Center that absolutely blazed the stage for the #Juneteenth Celebration at the #MFABoston #frontrow #blackgirlmagic #summer17 #dance

Max went on his first trip to the MFA Boston today. The first of many, to be sure. I took a bunch of photos, but thought this one was appropriate.

All through life, be sure and put your feet in the right place, and then stand firm. #bronze #lincoln #wisdom #boston #mfaboston

This very painting was the #epiphany of my art. I saw it as a kid at the #muséedesîlesetdetahiti and was so moved by its size and meaning 😍D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous? #paulgauguin #mfaboston
