Matisse in the Studio
'Matisse in the Studio …focuses on the artist’s relationship with his objects…― a seaglass green vessel, a Congolese mask, North African tapestries ― paired with the paintings where they appear. The result is a heightened sense of intimacy with his already sensual, summery paintings, and gives a glimpse into the studio ― and mental ― space of the artist' - Boston Globe
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and London's Royal Academy, Matisse in the Studio is the first book in English to explore the role that Henri Matisse’s personal collection of objects played in his studio practice.
Works that span the artist’s entire career are presented here alongside the objects that inspired them, from Asian vases and African masks to intricate textiles from the Islamic world.
