Time Out says

A small slice of Mediterranean summer comes to Westbourne Park with this show of 35 prints by Henri Matisse. This series of lithographic prints is derived from Matisse's famous paper cut-outs, which were made right at the end of the master's life, when he was confined to his bed and, with limited mobility, started 'drawing with scissors' by cutting shaped from large sheets of paper painted in sunshine hues by his assistants. Among the iconic images reproduced here on a smaller scale are 'The Snail' and works from his 'Blue Nudes' series.
