Later this week members of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (MFA) will be able to see the first major international exhibition (and only showing in the US) that examines the importance of Henri Matisse’ s personal collection of objects, offering unprecedented insight into the artist’s creativity. The exhibit opens to the public next Sunday, April 9th and will run through July 9, 2017.

The exhibit includes 36 paintings, 26 drawings, 11 bronzes, 9 cut-outs, 3 prints, and an illustrated book by Matisse along with approximately 39 works from his studio collection (many on loan from private collections and publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time).

Matisse in the Studio – MFA Exhibit

Henri Matisse (December 31, 1869 – November 3, 1954) was a French artist, known for his use of color and his fluid and original draughtsmanship. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso, as one of the artists who best helped to define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the opening decades of the twentieth century. His mastery and impressive body of work that spans over a half-century, won him recognition as a leading figure in modern art.
