The exhibition at Capital Culture Gallery in Coltishall's Church Street features a range of Matisse's works from six distinct periods of his career, including his beautiful line drawings, portraits and the vibrant colour of his later art.

James Sparshatt, gallery owner, said: 'Matisse was an obvious choice for our spring show, given the wide range of prints he produced over his lifetime.

'We hope the exhibition we are holding in April and May will delight collectors, fans and students alike as well as giving people the opportunity to hang original prints in their homes.'

The exhibition is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 9.30am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm and runs until May 18.
