London's Tate Modern will on Thursday open a blockbuster exhibition celebrating the cut-out works of French artist Henri Matisse, which made even Picasso jealous.At the end of his life, ravaged by disease and confined to a wheelchair, Matisse became more and more interested in the technique of cutting until scissors finally replaced brushes as his favourite tool.A film shown in the exhibition shows the artist in his studio, eagerly cutting coloured gouache paper before composing the final works, sometimes huge, with the help of assistants.Matisse's new direction impressed Picasso, who became jealous of the work when he came to visit his colleague's Nice studio, according to Cullinan.
