Int' But the sheets are not smooth and taut like canvas And the walls and ceiling are too far away What will he do no I'm creating directly with colorIt's what I've been striving for all my lifeMr Matisse and His Cutouts is a children's nonfiction picture book After a severe illness renowned artist Henri Matisse is bedridden in a bare white room Despite his pain he still has the insatiable need to create and fill the walls with color Since painting is difficult he begins creating art by cutting shapes out of paper and arranging the shapes into stunning compositions with the help of an assistant When he is able to return home he continues to create using the cutout method I found this informative article about the process at The Museum of Modern Art's website The Parakeet and the Mermaid 1952The illustrations fit the subject perfectly Sometimes the shapes swirl around the pages mimicking the movement in Matisse's artwork The illustrator uses the vibrant colors of Matisse's color palette At the end there are a few paragraphs of biographical informationWhat struck me most about the story was Matisse's instinctive need to create and how he kept creating despite his physical challenges When his illness made it difficult to paint he didn't give up; he devised a new way to create I recommend this book especially for children who enjoy making artwork It would be so fun to create cutout collages with your child when you finish reading He couldn't sleep and he wouldn't take a sleeping pillI might lose all the beautiful images if I didThank you to North South Books Inc NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Publication Date September 1 2016

Mr Matisse and His CutoutsMr Matisse is a painter with the sun in his tummy His colors make everyone happy But one day he becomes ill and has t What a wonderful book for children with artistic interests and their adults It deserves to be read with parents and by adults too The underlying story presents Matisse having to go to the hospital due to stomach problems not specifically outlined for children readers He has surgery and then is confined to bed unable to use the paints and brushes that he so loves So what does he do He invents a new form of expression for his art cut out shapes of varying forms and colorsThis book is a riot of color and shape and demonstrates how one can make the use of one's skills even when other abilities may be limited It also shows how art can be a collaborative effort I've always enjoyed Matisse's colorful art cutouts and now that I know their history I believe I love them even Definitely recommendedA copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review
