About the Artwork
Henri Matisse (1869-1954)
La Tristesse du roi
Papiers gouachés, découpés, marouflés sur toile
292 x 386 cm
For this monumental artwork, Matisse uses his technique of cut gouache. Several commentators on the artwork have noted that a Matisse is always remembered taller than he actually is. This is because the giant image of the cut-outs sums up the expansive space pursued by Matisse throughout his life.
The technique of printing under acrylic glass used by the greatest artists gives the works a very contemporary look, depth and brings intensity to the colours. Acrylic glass (Plexiglas®) is unbreakable, lighter than glass and easy to clean with a sponge.
