Henri Matisse pochoir "Algue bleue sur fond rouge"
Henri Matisse pochoir "Algue bleue sur fond rouge"


Item Code: 5617

Medium: pochoir (after the découpage). This small but rare print was hand-colored in 1953 in the Ateliers du Coloris Moderne under the direction of Y. F. Wils, and published in Paris the same year by Galerie Berggruen. Issued in an edition of 1000, this is a recreation in pochoir format of one of the delightful Matisse paper cut-outs -- his "Papiers Découpés". The image measures 4 x 2 3/4 inches (105 x 70 mm). There is a different composition on the back, as issued. The colors are rich and vivid. Not signed.

Condition: there is a small bump near the top left corner of the sheet (in the margin and not affecting the pochoir image).
