Henri's Scissors

Jeanette Winter is the chronicler of some extraordinary lives. In Henri's Scissors she turns her focus to the last ears of Matisse's life when he moved from painting to decoupage (paper cutouts). Suffering from cancer and wheelchair bound, Henri used scissors and coloured paper to make his leaps of creativity. This picture book teaches us that art transcends all, including death.
