Behind The Cut - Outs
@ Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

As part of the Public Program, in conjunction with the exhibition The Oasis of Matisse (March 29 - August 16, 2015), the Stedelijk Museum proudly presents a review of the most complex conservation projects on Henri Matisse’s work. During the last decade of his life Matisse deployed two simple materials-white paper and gouache-to create works of wide - ranging color and complexity. He used an unorthodox implementa pair of scissorsto transform the paper and paint into a world of plants, animals, figures, and shapes. Preserving these so-called cut - outs, some of impressive scale, has been a true challenge for conservators all over the world and will be the focus of a discussion by conservators Karl Buchberg (MoMA, New York) and André van Oort (previously with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam). LINK Stedelijk AMS
