    One thought on “Henri's Scissors”

    1. Some young readers will be familiar with the paintings of Henri Matisse who was born in France. The text and illustrations, created with cut paper and acrylic paint, cover Henri's formative years and the influence of his mother. After leaving behind a possible law career, he focused on painting. Many years later, after a successful career, he became ill and was unable to paint. Still, he managed to create, using painted paper and scissors. Eventually, the walls of his room were filled with a pap [...]

    2. Picture book biography focuses on Matisse's late work - his paper collages/"cut-outs". Simple yet evocative text, with quotes from Matisse himself.

    3. This informational picture book about Henry Matisse gives the readers just enough information about his life that we are able to learn something new. This picture book takes us through his early years of painting and into his later years, after his illness, of cutting. The author uses real quotes from Matisse, which she found in other books about him. The colorful illustrations really make you pay attention to Matisse’s work and show his creativity in his shapes and cutouts. This is a great bo [...]

    4. 1) Has anyone ever heard of Henri Matisse? Wait for response. I would share a short biography of the artist that is included in the back of the book. I would then project some of Matisse’s famous paintings that he made. Once I finished the book I would then share pictures of the large cut outs Matisse made. 2) With this opening, I would be providing important background information that will allow students to make connections and realize how famous Matisse is. This might activate prior knowle [...]

    5. I love Henri Matisse's paper cuttings so I guess it is expected that I would also love this book. Jeanette Winter does a fantastic job both on the illustrations and the story of Henri Matisse's later years. She easily communicates the simplicity and exuberance of his later art work. I loved how she interspersed actual quotations throughout. The ending is both wonderful and amazing. This book will provide so much inspiration for children both in creating their own artwork and also in persevering [...]

    6. Fiction Twin Text: “Brush of the Gods” by Lenore Look (2013)Content Crossover: Art/Art HistoryRationale: Both these books discuss two different artists. Both start as painters but take different paths. I want the children to get in touch with their creative side and realize that art comes in many shapes and forms. I would read each book, while reading we would complete a Venn diagram as a class. The center of the circles where they connect, we would put the similarities between the artists. [...]

    7. Winter focuses on the artist’s later years when he was confined to a bed and a wheelchair. Here Matisse is depicted using colored paper and scissors and employing his vivid imagination to create artwork that his assistants put up on the walls of his seaside cottage. “A pair of scissors is a wonderful instrument,” says Matisse. He wonders why he never thought of using the technique of paper cutting for his designs earlier. In this book the pictures Winter creates are done in acrylics and cu [...]

    9. Booklist starred (June 1, 2013 (Vol. 109, No. 19))Grades K-3. Masterful picture-book biographer Winter (The Watcher, 2011) offers an elegant, accessible portrait of expressive artist Henri Matisse. She tackles his childhood, law career, and establishment as a painter of note in the first eight pages, using small, square-frame illustrations with text placed above and below. As an old man, Matisse becomes ill, and the book turns a stylistic corner, spending the balance of its pages exploring the c [...]

    10. I was positively surprised by Winter’s book on Matisse. A different take from any other picture book on him I have ever seen before, simple yet creative, furthermore, full of unexpected poetry. Henri's Scissors is uplifting as it deals with drastic changes of careers, illness, old age, the end of life and death. Even though those are mere brushes, they are extremely important in this narrative for a richer content. Drawing with scissors is made beautiful as it should and Henri Matisse’s art [...]

    11. Bright, coloring children's picture book biography of Henri Matisse. I had no idea that, later in life, Matisse was unable to paint, and instead turned to cutting paper into designs.

Nominated for the North Carolina Children's Book Award (2016-2017).

I love the bright splashes of color and green leaves that draw me into the fish. I did not know much more about him until I read Jeanette Winter's book Henri's Sissors. People who lose the ability to do something they love and through this hardship find something else they love, fascinate me.
