Matisse in the Studio is the first major international exhibition to examine the roles that objects from the artist’s personal collection played in his art, demonstrating their profound influence on his creative choices. Henri Matisse (1869–1954) believed that these objects were instrumental, serving both as inspiration and as a material extension of his working process. In 1951, he described them as actors: “A good actor can have a part in ten different plays; an object can play a role in ten different pictures.”
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, Matisse in the Studio by Ellen McBreen and Helen Burnham, with contributions by Suzanne Preston Blier, Jack Flam, Claudine Grammont, Hélène Ivanoff and Marie-Thérèse Pulvenis de Séligny. Produced by MFA Publications, the book is the first in English to explore the essential role that Henri Matisse’s personal collection of objects played in his studio practice. Works that span the artist’s entire career, including bold paintings, drawings, cut-outs, and sculpture, are presented in the company of the objects that inspired them, from Chinese vases and African masks to intricate textiles from the Islamic world. With lush illustrations and archival images, Matisse in the Studio provides exceptional insight into the world of the artist at work.
