About

This was one of Matisse’s last and largest works composed originally using the paper-cut techniques. Matisse had surgery for colon cancer in 1941 that left him bedridden and unable to stand at his easel for long periods of time. Instead of painting, Matisse would cut out forms from colored paper and his assistant would later paste them into their final positions in the composition. For a ceramic work, such as Apollo, these paper cut outs were transferred to ceramic tile with each step in this process being carefully supervised by Matisse. The abstract leaf-forms explode from the center, contained by two curved lines and two pillars. The entire scene is presided over by a plain, mask-like, face who is crowned by a sun. This being seems to be an homage to the Greco Roman Sun G/d for whom the work is named.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

"The quality is what really caught my eye. All the other stuff was great, but it all was about my love of Wright being so far ahead of his time and then you completed the circle with prints and weight of paper that blew me away."
