Artistic naivety at its best
ORIGINAL works by iconic French Modernist Henri Matisse are on display at an Exeter gallery for art lovers to enjoy.
Regarded as one of the most successful artists of the 20th century, Henri was equally accomplished in a range of media including painting, sculpture and fine art prints.
A collection of almost 70 of his original lithographs, some signed by the artist and spanning his remarkable career as a 20th century modernist, is currently on show at city centre gallery Gloss-Art in Barnfield Crescent.
Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the three leading artists to revolutionise developments in the plastic arts during his time.

Visitors will be able to explore information on the historical use of the lithographic print method through the beautiful Matisse suite, which combines stone, ink and the drawn image to create original limited edition prints.
Gloss-Art manager Lucinda Cusdin said: "The Matisse exhibition includes exclusive works from four different suites; his Last Works, Jazz and Circus, Florilége des Amours Ronsard and Poèmes – Charles D'Orléans.
"These lithographs in particular really communicate the popular methods of reproduction used by modern masters. Matisse's work shows artistic naivety at its best and is truly unmissable. "
Matisse Lithographs will run at Gloss-Art until Saturday, February 23.
