About this artwork

Matisse created "The Snail" while staying at the Hôtel Régina in Nice, located in the South of France. This piece is one of his later cut-outs. He shared, "I initially sketched the snail from life, then a clear image formed in my mind, eliminating the shell, and then I grabbed the scissors." He mixed pairs of contrasting colours - green and red, blue and orange, yellow and mauve - to produce a lively effect.The original artwork is gouache on paper, cut and pasted onto another paper, and then mounted on a canvas. The dimensions are 286.4 x 287 cm.

About the artist

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was a French artist who is widely regarded as one of the most influential painters of the 20th century. He was a leader of the Fauvism movement, which emphasised strong colours and bold, expressive brushstrokes. Matisse was also heavily influenced by the Post-Impressionists, particularly Paul Cézanne. He was known for his use of bright colours and his ability to capture the essence of a scene in a single image. Matisse was also a sculptor, printmaker, and draughtsman. He was married twice and had three children.
