Biggest-ever Matisse cut-out show becomes record exhibiton for Tate

Henri Matisse, 'The Snail,' 1953 "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" has become the Tate's most successful exhibition ever, the UK art gallery group has announced. Over half a million people flocked to London's Tate Modern over a five-month period to see the exhibition, which was the most comprehensive to ever be dedicated to the artist's striking paper cut-outs made between 1943 and 1954. Matisse, one of the most prominent figures in Modern art, began to cut into painted paper with scissors to make maquettes when ill health prevented him from painting towards the end of his career. "It is testament to the power and accessibility of Matisse's work that the exhibition has captured imaginations of visitors of all ages throughout the spring and summer this year," said Tate Director Nicholas Serota.

A police officer stands guard in front of the Jewish Museum in Brussels By Julia Fioretti BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Four months after a shooting that killed four people, the Brussels Jewish Museum opened its doors to the public again on Sunday in a solemn ceremony attended by Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo.

"We are fighting and will continue in our fight against terrorism," Di Rupo said at the opening ceremony marked by tight security.
