Two Volumes in slipcase. Fine set in lightly marked slipcase

This title brings back to life the most important result of Matisse’s cut-outs period: Jazz, the legendary suite of twenty colorful prints with calligraphic text.

Printed using the same paper and inks – in up to 16 colors – as for the original 1947 edition, this volume allows readers to experience Jazz as if they were beholding the original. To put the work in context, the complete story of Matisse’s cut-outs is traced from its first origins during the artist’s trip to Tahiti in 1930 through the late works during his final years in Nice. Also included are other pivotal works from his later career, including Matisse’s contributions to Verve magazine and his decoration of the Vence Chapel. The gorgeous reproductions of Matisse’s work are accompanied by rare photographs taken by Matisse in Tahiti as well as photos of Matisse by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, and the filmmaker Murnau. Gilles Neret’s text is supplemented by quotations from Matisse, Picasso, Teriade (the publisher of “Jazz and Verve”), poets such as Aragon, Henri Michaux, and Pierre Reverdy, and Matisse’s son-in-law, Georges Duthuit, as well as collectors such as Heinz and Oliver Berggruen.
