Henri Matisse is considered one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. Known for his use of bright colors, flat patterns, abstract forms and graceful lines, Matisse developed a unique artistic vision that continues to inspire artists to this day. Drawn from the Museum's permanent collection, this exhibition will pair paintings and prints by modern and contemporary artists alongside prints by Matisse to illustrate the artist's enduring legacy, both in terms of style and subject matter.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
