A GALLERY will host a new exhibition of lithographs in the new year.

Gosport Gallery, in Walpole Road, Gosport will put on display the reproductions of work by Henri Matisse, the French painter, sculptor and designer.

Born in 1869, Matisse was one of the most influential artists in the 20th century.

More than 30 late works from 1950-1954 will form the Matisse Drawing with Scissors exhibit, on display from February 16 to April 20.

They date from the last four years of his life and are vibrant, celebrated for their richness and colour.

Each piece is a cut-out and the collection has reproductions of many of his most iconic images, including The Snail and the Blue Nudes.

The gallery is open 10am to 4pm and admission is free.

The exhibition is on tour from Southbank.
