Resolutely Matisse

  • Gallery 6
Henri Matisse, "Nu au coussin bleu (Nude with blue cushion)", 1924,
transfer lithograph on paper, 29 7/8 x 22 in. Bequest of Etta and
Claribel Cone, 1949.

Known for his use of bright colors, flat patterns, simplified forms, and graceful lines, Matisse developed a unique artistic vision that continues to draw admirers to this day. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition showcases Matisse's devotion to the human form. The exhibition also includes images by other artists whose stylistic similarities in subject and technique suggest a broadly shared set of artistic concerns with Matisse.
