Cover type: 

When Matisse could no longer paint, he cut colored paper to create entirely new works of art. The improvisations in color and rhythm, made with painted paper and scissors, were arguably the culmination of his career―a perfect synthesis of color and line. In addition to the approximately 100 illustrations of his cut-outs, this book includes a biography and a chronological summary of his life and work.
