Color lithograph after a paper cut-out and gouache, 1952. Published in the deluxe art review, Verve. This work was produced under Matisse's supervision for a special issue of Verve dedicated to Matisse's paper cut-outs. He died before the work was published and the volume then became a tribute to Matisse, Les Dernieres Oeuvres de Matisse. Signed and dated in the stone before Matisse's death.
