Artist: Henri Matisse

Title: Icarus

Year: 1983

Type: Lithograph on Paper (Jazz)

Size: 35.4 x 23.4



A powerful image of contrasting color capturing the figure of Icarus tumbling from the sky after flying too close to the sun. Strategically placed on the front cover of the Verve issue of Jazz, the image reinforces the preoccupation that modern French artists, including Matisse, had with Greek mythology.
