Henri Matisse (1869-1954)—one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. This exhibition, the first large-scale Matisse retrospective in Japan in twenty years, will be held in cooperation with the Centre Pompidou, home to one of the world’s largest Matisse collections.
Matisse was a leader of the Fauvism movement at the 20th century’s start. Thereafter, until his death at 84, he devoted himself to experimenting with bright colors and shapes able to appeal directly to the senses. Unfading in brilliance, Matisse’s revolutionary art continues to fascinate us and strongly impact artists after him.
This exhibition will examine all aspects of Matisse’s oeuvre: his sculptures, sketches, prints, and cut-outs as well as his paintings, along with materials related to his final masterpiece, the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence. Do not miss this valuable opportunity follow Henri Matisse’s artistic journey.
