The most desirable lithograph produced under Matisse's supervision for a special issue of Verve dedicated to Matisse's paper cut-outs.
These works have been realised by the artist with papers coloured in gouache, cut with scissors and pasted. They are shown here with drawings executed at the same time or during the preceding period. Matisse composed the cover specially for this volume. These lithographic plates were printed during the year 1954 under his direction. The printing of the lithographs in colour by Mourlot Frères and that of the photogravure reproductions and the typography by the master printers Draeger Frères, was completed in Paris on the 28th day of July 1958.
This lithograph is the original one, printed in 1958, not a later reprint or copy.
