There is a must-see show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City that looks at Matisse's later works - his cut-outs. The holidays are upon us but when the festivities calm down and you have a chance, definitely make a trip to New York to see this lovely exhibition. "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" is an in-depth investigation of an extremely productive time in Matisse's life. Towards the end of his life, his movement was limited and he rediscovered his passion for color and composition through paper cut-outs. And there are so many on display!
People who love art will be so excited to see this show; people who may not be Matisse's aficionados will still find it how really fun. It is all about color and shapes and joy of creativity. A great show for kids too who can enjoy Matisse's playfulness and may end up testing some of his cutting strategies on their own or for a school project.
So, whether you are an art lover or not, reserve an afternoon to wander through this show! It is well worth it.
