I’m a sucker for children’s reactions to art, and in this new video by the Tate a bunch of kids share their thoughts about artist Henri Matisse’s cut-paper works (gouaches découpés for the francophiles) at the London museum.

As one little girl puts it, in what seems like a somewhat creepy dialogue with the dead artist, “You’re doing fairly well for an old man, because my grandpa wouldn’t be able to do that.” Nicely put, kid.
