Matisse #purejoy TikTok Timeless


About the piece

“it may seem that joy radiates from my work more than in the past but this is exactly what I tried to do 50 years ago. It has taken me all this time to reach a stage when I can say what I want to say”. Matisse started to paint cut outs since the late 40s and it turned out to be a second life for the artist. Matisse would cut painted sheets into forms of varying shapes and sizes which he then arranged into lively compositions which grew from modest size to large scale. He said that he was “drawing with scissors” or “carving into color," like a sculpture. The song is "Y'a de la joie" (there is joy) by French singer Charles Trenet release in 1937.
