Henri MATISSE - LE CLOWN. Pochoir original de Jazz (Frontispice de l'album. 1947)

Composition aux pochoirs d'après les papiers découpés originaux de Matisse.
Planche n°I, "Le Clown", frontispice, provenant d'un des cent albums à plat, bifolios non pliés, épreuves sans le texte, édité par Tériade en 1947.
La condition la plus rare, la plus belle et la plus recherchée.

Belle épreuve sur vélin d'Arches sans pli central, les couleurs très fraîches et lumineuses.
Planche jamais exposée ni encadrée. Papier légèrement jauni.

Photos supplémentaires sur demande.

Pochoir printed in colours, 1947, from Jazz, Plate n°I : "The Clown" (frontispice).
From the suite edition of 100 without the center fold, the most wanted condition.
Printed on Arches paper by Edmond Vairel, Paris.
Published by Teriade, Paris, 1947.

Drawing inspiration from both folklore and the circus, as evident in titles such as "The Clown" and "Icarus". Matisse originally presumed to title the series Le Cirque. Yet, his publisher, Tériade, later suggested the title Jazz, which although unrelated to the subject matter, Matisse welcomed for the connection it implied between art and musical improvisation.
