‘If you have not already I urge you to visit the latest Henri Matisse exhibition; Be warned nothing quite prepares you for the beauty and scale of Matisse’s late work shown at the Tate Modern until the 7th September 2014.

As his strength declined, the scale of his cut-outs increased. The exhibition shows the development of these cut-outs and the beauty of life even as we face its end.’
