The Blue Nudes are a series of lithographs in colour by Henri Matisse. The artist’s physical health declined following surgery for stomach cancer, thus he began creating art by cutting and painting sheets of paper by hand. The solid blue used in the series harks back to earlier stages of Matisse’s career, where he favoured the use of single colours; this technique became known as Fauvism. He supervised the subsequent lithographs until his death in 1954. After Matisse’s death, the works were printed in a special 1956 edition of Verve, entitled “les Derniers Oeuvers de Matisse,” however, only the editions completed before his death bear a signature.
