FIRST EDITION. "This book gathers a selection of Matisse's graphic work produced during a half century. It does not include drawings nor does it attempt a catalogue raisonné of his prints. The survey offers a comprehensive review of his work in the many print media he chose to use--drypoint, etching, lithography, linoleum cut, monotype and aquatint. It also reproduces pages from those books Matisse illustrated with original prints" (Introduction).
