Matisse and San Francisco
Matisse and San Francisco
Henri Matisse's radical aesthetic vocabulary left a lasting impact on the modern art world and was embraced by forward-looking collectors in the San Francisco Bay Area. Celebrating the longstanding enthusiasm for Henri Matisse in the region, Matisse and San Francisco traces four decades of the artist's career through a selection of paintings, drawings, and bronzes from local collections. Important pictures from the artist's Fauve period are featured along with portraits, still lifes, landscapes, seascapes, and studies of the human form, showcasing the diversity of Matisse's subject matter as well as his bold and vibrant use of color. An essay by SFMOMA curator Janet Bishop, 29 colorful plates, and comparative images combine to illuminate San Francisco's status as a significant repository of Matisse's work outside of Paris.
