A nude, ‘Figure de Dos au Collier Noir’ by Henri Matisse from 1906. This high-quality, hand-pulled silkscreen print on heavy matt ivory paper is float-mounted in a recessed gallery box frame. The frame is made of carefully selected North American ash wood from sustainably managed forests. The wood is consistent in colour and grain and the timber is milled in the UK and finished by hand. Black staining is applied, followed by a hand-polished coloured wax, creating a deep lustre. Henri Matisse was known for his fluid use of colour and is recognised as a leading figure in modern art in the early twentieth century. Over six decades, he carved a career using all forms of media, including drawing, sculpture and printmaking. Born 1869 in Le Cateau-Cambrésis in northern France, he was originally a legal clerk. He began drawing at an evening class before moving to Paris in 1891 to pursue his vocation as an artist. It wasn’t until the beginning of the twentieth century when he had his major creative breakthrough. A visit to Saint-Tropez inspired him to paint a bright, light-dappled canvas. He continued this style, which became known as Fauvism. Some of his most noted pieces happened during his later years. He was often bedridden due to illness and surgery but he still managed to produce breakthrough works using paper cut-outs. Have you thought about hooks and fittings ?
