      Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story is a major Natural History Museum exhibition on early humankind. Twelve years of research have gone into the exhibition to bring to life  prehistoric human existence in Britain.

      Event: Matisse Collages Exhibition

      Location: Tate Modern, SE1

      The Tate Modern’s major Matisse exhibition, Henri Matisse: The Cut-outs, focuses on the artist’s stunning final artworks, his colourful cut-out collages.

      Produced in the last few years of his life when ill health prevented him from painting (between 1943 and 1954), Matisse turned to collage, using cut out or torn painted paper for his designs, known as gouaches découpées. The Tate Modern has around 120 Matisse cut-outs, now considered to be iconic signature works, for a show at the Bankside gallery.
