Matisse Drawings: Curated by Ellsworth Kelly from The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation Collection

30 August - 14 December 2014

Henri Matisse drew constantly, and his direct, elegant draftsmanship has become a hallmark of modern art. This exhibition features Matisse drawings from across 50 years:  1900-1950. We thank Ellsworth Kelly for making a brilliant and discerning selection and for conceiving a stunning presentation of these drawings. We further thank The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation for generously making the Foundation collection available to him for this project.

This exhibition is made possible by the Susan B. Weatherbie Exhibition Fund.
