Jazz by Henri MatisseLate in his life, confined to a chair or bed, Matisse transformed a simple technique into a medium for the creation of a major art. “I have attained a form filtered to its essentials.” Cutting dynamic shapes from painted paper, Matisse created his images. While producing pieces for Jazz, the artist used a large brush to write notes to himself on construction paper. The simple visual appearance of the words pleased Matisse, and he suggested using his reflective handwritten thoughts in juxtaposition with the images. The original edition of Jazz was an artist’s book, printed in a limited quantity. This selection from the original is an exquisite suite of color plates and text that, like the music it was named for, was invented in a spirit of improvisation and spontaneity. These magnificent cut-outs of pure color celebrate the radiance and emotional intensity of the artist’s oeuvre.
Iconic Impressions: Henri Matisse’s Jazz

In recent years, the exceedingly libral use of the term iconic when refering to works of art has rendered the label nearly meaningless. Iconic status, however, is really quite profound: Icons permeate consciousness, informing our comprehension of nearly every idea we consider. It is, for me, a matter of simplification. Instead of drawing the contour and filling in the color — one modifying the other — I draw directly into the color, which is all the more controlled in that it is not transposed. This simplification guarantees a precision in the reunion of the two means, which brings them together as one. Before coming to this realization, Matisse wrestled with the possibilities of reproduction with his publisher, who approached the artist in to create one of his cut-out works — a form he only used previously for compositional planning — for the cover of his publication, Verve.
