Le Platane is a 1951 serigraph by Henri Matisse, the French artist who helped revolutionise modern art in the 20th century. In the late 1940s and early 50s, Matisse's drawings become bolder, the contour line thicker, the forms even more simplified and devoid of detail.

Le Platane shows a plane tree and as Matisse explained to a friend in 1943, illustrates that the intended space between leaves are as important as the leaves themselves. The artwork was a draft design for a ceramic intended for the villa of his friend and editor Tériade. It was produced in Matisse's final years at a time when ill health had forced him to give up traditional painting, in favour of producing decoupage, cut-outs and screen prints.
