Description

A men's silk jacket from the Shōwa era.

  • In the last decade of his life, when poor health prevented him from painting, Henri Matisse turned to cut paper as his primary medium, inventing the cutout. Matisse used a pair of scissors to create plants, animals, figures and shapes, transforming paint and paper. Gradually, Matisse preferred cutouts over painting and produced some of his most memorable work.
  • The artist of this haori could have been inspired by many of his works, including Composition, Black and Red from 1947, pictured here.
