Henri Matisse – The Colour of Ideas

Held in collaboration with the Pompidou Centre in Paris, this exhibition features more than 150 artefacts, presenting Matisse's work in eight chronological and themed sections, from the early days to pieces created in the 1950s. The exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts also sheds light on the genre diversity of Matisse's oeuvre, as in addition to around 30 paintings, unique and duplicated graphic works (with special regard to art books and cover designs) and 17 sculptures are also on display. In a separate section, you can see the monumental glass window designs created for the artist's late main work, the Dominican chapel in Vence. In addition to studies by foreign and domestic authors, the exhibition catalogue includes a selection of Matisse's own writings. See our full feature about the exhibition here.
