Henri Matisse painted his series of "Blue Nudes" between 1943 and 1947. They form part of "Jazz", a limited-edition book with 20 prints, on show at the Pompidou Center, Paris.
In later years, Matisse had to face declining health and find new ways to continue with his creative work: he painted sheets of papere until he found the right color.
He then used scissors to cut shapes out of these coloured sheets and created beautiful large-scale works. He believed that a true artist "should never be a prisoner of his own self, of his style or of his success".
