Matisse's Garden

Matisse's Garden charmingly tells the story of Henri Matisse discovering the worlds he could create with his cut-outs, as he flew through the paper with his scissors like a bird through the sky. Full of colour and life, this book by Samantha Friedman and Cristina Amodeo will inspire little artists and even features reproductions of original works by Matisse on interactive fold-out pages.
