The Blue Nudes refer to a series of cut-outs by Henri Matisse completed in 1952. Many critics consider this to be his most innovative period. He had begun to experience severe arthritis and had a bout with cancer which forced him to be confined in a wheelchair. He could no longer stand to paint, so instead he created paintings with scissors by cutting pieces of colorful paper and gluing them onto larger pieces of paper with the help of his assistants. They were called « gouaches découpés » (cutouts). The painted gouache cut-outs that comprise the Blue Nudes were inspired by Matisse's collection of African sculpture and a visit that he made to Tahiti in 1930.

    Ich bin ziemlich enttäuscht von dem was ich bekommen habe.
    Das ist keine Lithografien. Da ist ein Stück hochwertiges Papier durch den Drucker
    Gezogen worden. Einfach lächerlich.
