Making the most of Matisse.

The cut outs of Henri Matisse at Tate Modern are marvellous.
There are always lessons to be learnt from examining the work of the great masters.
The display that showed his colour palette was very interesting.
As was the template for the Madonna and Child.
The paper was painted by an assistant.
The more you look at the Cut- outs the more you understand what an art form this is.

Matisse was concerned with the juxtaposition of colours.
Simplicity was a keynote.
Anyone connected with design can gain a lot from examination of such wonderful art.
