It features 35 lithographic reproductions of the famous cut-outs, produced in the last four years of his life, when the artist was confined to his bed. Matisse: Drawing With Scissors includes many of his iconic images, such as The Snail and the Blue Nudes.

Councillor Jim Harte, convener of Renfrewshire Council's Leisure, Sport And Cultural Policy Board, said: "I am delighted Paisley Museum is hosting this stunning display of reproductions of works from one of the world's best known artists. It will provide a rare opportunity for visitors to see some of the most well known art images of the 20th century."

The exhibition runs until September 28 and entry is £3 (£2 concessions).
