About This Work

A vintage colour lithograph after a paper cut-out and gouache, 1952. ‘The Parakeet and the Mermaid'(La Perruche et la Sirène) was produced under Matisse’s supervision for a special issue of Verve (Les Dernieres Oeuvres de Matisse) which was dedicated to Matisse’s paper cut-outs. As Matisse died before the work was published in 1958, the volume then became a tribute to Matisse.
