Matisse's Garden

Author(s): Samantha Friedman; Cristina Amodeo; Henri Matisse


One day, the French artist Henri Matisse cut a small bird out of a piece of paper. It looked lonely all by itself, so he cut out more shapes to join it. Before he knew it, Matisse had transformed his walls into larger-than-life gardens, filled with brightly colored plants, animals, and shapes of all sizes Featuring cut-paper illustrations and interactive foldout pages, Matisse's Garden is the inspiring story of how the artist's never-ending curiosity helped turn a small experiment into a radical new form of art.
