Matisse paper cutouts.
Matisse published a delightful book titled Jazz. The book consists of twenty color plates of paper cutouts, printed in a hundred copies. These cheerful multicolor abstract and figurative forms celebrate colors and the art of improvisations. He called Jazz as a "chromatic and rhythmic improvisation."

Matisse began to create paper cutouts after he became physically ill. However, the physical limitation did not confine his creative spirits and love of life. His paper cutouts are among his most admired work in his career.

For Vincent Van Gogh, the expressive use of colors is the way to create powerful works of art. He once wrote to his brother Theo: "Instead of trying to reproduce exactly what I have before my eyes, I use colors more arbitrarily so as to express myself forcibly." Van Gogh certainly achieved what he desired.

The queen of polka dots said: "I want to go to Heaven knowing that I have created colors for myself and other people's lives."

Color is the most important element in Kusama's life. Colors bring her excitement, inspiration and a sense of uninhibited youthfulness at the age of eighty-three.
