With Matisse's declining health toward the end of his life, it became increasingly difficult for Matisse to paint at an easel. Thus, he developed a method of creation by way of collage. By cutting out shapes from pure colored sheets of paper, he could "sculpt" his way to assembling a finished composition. In 1954, he worked with Mourlot, the famous printer, to commemorate his finished collages or "cut out' in the medium of original lithography. Later published in Verve, Publisher Teriade, Printed by Mourlot.
