The Hot Ticket: Henri Matisse - The Cut-Outs

Eye-popping colour, graphic theatricality, an overwhelming sense of freedom; Tate Modern’s new, must-see exhibition, Henri Matisse: The Cut-outs, has got it all.

Plagued by ill health and unable to paint, Matisse first started cutting out and placing pieces of painted paper as a form of drafting but, in turn, the artist invented an entirely new and exciting medium.

The exhibition brings together over 120 of the cut-out works, created between 1936 and 1954, to offer the chance to get up close but also be engulfed by the spectacular, often large-scale works.

An exhibition not to be missed, let it inspire your style by picking out Paintbox brights and turning to Tod's to provide comfort in the shoe department. Scroll down to shop our favourite pieces.

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs opens today until Sunday 7th September at Tate Modern.
