Matisse Cutouts Keepsake Box Note Cards
It's color, color, color, on the late-career Henri Matisse cards in Galison's Matisse Cutouts Keepsake Box of note cards:
Madame de Pompadour reçoit le Mardi 20 Novembre 1951 au Pavillon de Marsan a 22 heures, a lithograph from 1952 from the Peter Stone Collection of Posters by Artists at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Danseuse créole, Nice, a gouache on cut and pasted paper mounted on canvas from the Musée Matisse in Nice;
The Cocomas, plate XI from the illustrated book Jazz, 1947; one from a portfolio of twenty pochoirs in the Museum of Modern Art, New York;
The King's Sadness (La Tristesse du roi), 1952, a cutout from the Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris.
The sturdy decorative box holds cards and envelopes neatly, and when the cards have been sent, it's great for storing all sorts of little things--from extra buttons to pearls.
