With all the Street Gentry team having enjoyed the stunning Cut Outs exhibition at the Tate Modern this summer, deciding upon the next instalment of our Reading List series was an unusually easy choice.

 

Released next month to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the artists death ‘Drawing With Scissors’ illustrates Matisse’s iconic cut-out works with full colour photographs and insightful essays over 334 pages. (Including fold outs!) Browsing through the beautifully pages arranged it’s easy to see why Matisse’s bold and colourful works continue to provoke long queues of eager audiences outside galleries.

Whether you’re a Matisse fanatic or a casual admirer of great art and design, this hard cover Taschen tome will make a perfect coffee table book to dip in and out off when you’re craving a bit of a colour fix.va_matisse_cut_outs_04807_064_065_1405091339_id_814410
