One day, Henri Matisse (18691954) cut a small bird out of a piece of white paper. It was a simple shape, but he liked the way it looked and didnt want to throw it away, so he pinned it to the wall of his room. But the bird looked lonely all by itself, so he cut out more shapes to join it, and before he knew it, he had transformed his walls into larger-than-life gardens filled with brightly coloured plants and animals and shapes of all sizes. Featuring colourful cut-paper illustrations and Matisses own cut-outs, Matisses Garden is the inspiring story of how the artists never-ending curiosity and continuous process of trying new things helped turn a small experiment into a radical new form of art. Children will see how Matisse used nothing but paper and scissors to create simple shapes like squares, leaves and birds, and experimented with scraps of leftover paper and new colour combinations to create lush gardens on his studio walls.

Watanabe Sh tei aka Watanabe Seitei (1851 Edo - 1918) was a Nihonga painter and one of the first to visit Europe, attending the 1878 International Exhibition in Paris and being awarded a medal. Sh tei blended Western realism with the delicate colours and washes of the Maruyama-Shij school, introducing a new approach to kach ga or kacho (bird-and-flower painting).Born as Yoshikawa Yoshimata, he was later adopted by the family of his literary friend, Watanabe Koshi. His early studies were at age sixteen under Kikuchi Y sai (1788 1878) after which he spent a brief time in the studio of the painter and lacquer artist, Shibata Zeshin (1807 1891).

Isadore "Friz" Freleng (August 21, 1906 May 26, 1995) was an animator, cartoonist, director, and producer best known for his work on the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons from Warner Bros. He introduced and/or developed several of the studio's biggest stars, including Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the cat, Yosemite Sam (to whom he was said to bear more than a passing resemblance) and Speedy Gonzales. The senior director at Warners' Termite Terrace studio, Freleng directed more cartoons than any other director in the studio (a total of 266), and is also the most honored of the Warner directors, having won four Academy Awards. After Warners shut down the animation studio in 1963, Freleng and business partner David DePatie founded DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, which produced cartoons (notably The Pink Panther Show), feature film title sequences, and Saturday morning cartoons through the early 1980s. The nickname "Friz" came from how "frizzly" his hair was at one time.
