Lamp base from Jazz series

After Henri Matisse

France
1869-1954

From the Jazz Series. plate 15 - after 1947 - porcelain "signed" Matisse 12.5" high

Gluing cut pieces of colored paper together to form compositions, these ‘cut-outs’ would serve not only as independent works but also as the basis for subsequent objects in a variety of other media, including ceramic, stained glass, textiles, and book design.

Although we have not found a record of this lamp, durng this time many of the artists authorized ceramic productions of their original designs, notably Picasso, Lurcat, and Cocteau. The enamel is piled on heavily above the smooth surface of the porcelain.
