Art Studies, January...

Self-Portrait



My selection for the month is Henri Matisse, focusing mainly on his cut paperwork. I'll be putting a piece or two up on the fridge each week, for the kids to study as they please! Here are some of the works I have chosen (and again, thanks to Mark Harden's Artchives for the images!)






Icarus

The Snail

Blue Nude

Le Gerbe

We'll do a project or two with our own cut-work sometime this month, in addition to other projects, while listening to our composer of the month, Sergei Prokofiev.

  1. Hey... um... I love the artwork! But with the new background and a white font, I have to highlight the post to read it :) For all I know, I caught you in the middle of the page modifications and you're working on it right now, but I figured you'd want to know :)
