    This is a beautiful fine art poster of The Snail by Henri Matisse. The Snail is one of the last and largest (the original is over 2m x 2m) pieces in Matisses final series of works, known as sgouaches découpées, 'cut-out gouaches'.Matisse was prevented from painting by ill health which confined him to bed but he was able todraw with scissors by cutting or tearing shapes from paper which had been painted with gouache. He then directed his assistants who placed the coloured pieces on the background sheet.Matisse said of the technique that it 'allows me to draw in the colour. It is a simplification for me. Instead of drawing the outline and putting the colour inside it - the one modifying the other - I draw straight into the colour'Click these words to find similar printsAbstract Colourful Animal Fauvism
