The more frequently we communicate digitally, the greater the pleasure of receiving a handwritten card. But it’s not just the thought that counts—a greeting card is also a feast for the eyes. This is certainly true of the high-quality cards featuring selected works by Picasso, Klee, Giacometti, Lichtenstein, Matisse, Miro, Ernst, Rousseau and Rothko from the collection of the Fondation Beyeler. Representing a wealth of different styles and movements, from abstract expressionism and classic modernism to Pop art, they offer a suitable artistic motif for every recipient.
"Nu bleu I" was created t two years before Henri Matisse’s death. In his late work, the artist turned to scissors and paper as a means of further simplifying his pictorial language. He breathed monumental life into complex figures and forms with this highly efficient artistic technique. Indeed, it is in Matisse’s simplest works that his genius, and significance within the history of 20th-century art, can perhaps be seen most clearly.
