Matisse: Radical Invention: 1913-1917

This groundbreaking exhibit at New York’s Museum of Modern Art examines a pivotal moment in the career of Henri Matisse, revealing the period of 1913 to 1917 to be one of the most significant chapters in the artist’s evolution. Organized with the Art Institute of Chicago, where it was first shown, the exhibit features more than 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints made by the artist between his return from Morocco in 1913 and his departure for Nice in 1917, including some of his most demanding and enigmatic works. New digital imaging and scanning techniques allowed the curators to examine the ways in which Matisse reworked his paintings and sculptures to reflect his artistic development, offering a fresh look at some of the master’s most ambitious and inspiring works.
