Matisse

Matisse in the Studio

This is the first major international exhibition to examine the importance of Henri Matisse’s studio collection, offering unprecedented insight into the revolutionary 20th-century artist’s creativity.

Five thematic sections—“The Object Is an Actor, “The Nude,” “The Face,” “Studio as Theatre,” and “Late Work”—feature a range of works in a variety of media from different points in the artist’s career. Approximately 30 paintings, 24 drawings, 11 bronzes, nine cut-outs and five prints by Matisse are showcased alongside 36 works from his studio collection—many on loan from the Musée Matisse, Nice, as well as private collections, and publicly exhibited for the first time. They include pots, pitchers and vases, as well as textiles, sculptures and masks from the non-Western traditions that Matisse greatly admired. Photographs of works in progress and Matisse’s various studios in Collioure, Issy-les-Moulineaux, Nice, and Vence are also displayed, vividly recreating the artist’s working spaces.

The exhibition travels to the Royal Academy of Arts in London from August 8–November 12, 2017, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue, produced by MFA Publications, with contributions by renowned Matisse scholars.
