Description:

In 1952 Henri Matisse’s created a series of blue colour lithographs using his signature cut out technique, titled Blue Nudes. The four nude female figures are portrayed in different poses and exemplify the collage technique that Matisse developed in the later part of his career.

In deep blue against a white background, the Blue Nudes appear deceptively simple but took numerous studies and weeks of laborious cutting and arranging to create the perfect form. With his Blue Nudes, Matisse achieved his aim “to draw in paper.” The paper was pre-painted with blue gouache by his assistants before Matisse “drew” the forms with his scissors and then assembled the figures.

The poses are thought to be derived from those in Matisse’s fauvist masterpiece The Joy of Life and continue his exploration of the theme of the female form that was an important subject throughout his career. Matisse chose the colour blue to represent volume and distance and despite the flatness of the paper, Matisse creates a sense of relief in the cut-outs by overlapping the shapes. Matisse’s Blue Nudes are the result of his lifelong quest to create “an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter.”
