NEW YORK (AP) - A Matisse exhibition that drew big crowds in London is opening soon at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

In anticipation of a large turnout, MoMa is issuing timed tickets for admission to “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs.”

They’re available online and at the museum and are free with the price of a regular admission.

The exhibition runs Oct. 12 through Feb. 8. It was shown at the Tate Modern in London before coming to MoMA.

The cut-outs were created largely in the last decade of the French artist’s life when he was recovering from cancer and unable to paint.

Henri Matisse used scissors and paper to create a series of big, bold and ambitious cutouts. Some are mural or room-size, including “The Swimming Pool,” which MoMA acquired in 1975.
