Product story

As Matisse worked on an illustrated collection of poems using his cut-out method, his hand-painted notes became important works in their own right, together forming the book Jazz, considered one of the artist's greatest achievements.

Pairing his vibrantly coloured paper cut-outs inspired by circus, folk tales and travel with his looping, calligraphic text, this book showcases Matisse's creative thought process, and the improvisation and spontaneity it involved.
