About the “La Rosace” , the Rose Window

Designed by Henri Matisse.  The creation of “La Rosace” involved Matisse’s colored paper “cut-outs,” the artist’s medium of choice in his later years.  Matisse completed the design a few days before his death.  The artist died before the window could be fabricated, but his daughter, Marguerite Duthuit, discovered the completed paper maquette at Matisse’s home and took charge of the commission, which she invested with great emotional significance as her father’s last creation.  “La Rosace” was dedicated to the memory of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller on Mother’s Day, 1956.
