Matisse in the Studio

Inspired by the original museography of the Matisse Museum in Nice, Matisse in the Studio is the first major international exhibition to examine the importance of Matisse’s personal collection of objects, offering unprecedented insight into the great artist’s creativity. The audience will have the unique opportunity to get a glimpse of the artist’s home interior, from which he constantly drew his inspiration.

Five thematic sections — “The Object Is an Actor,” “The Nude,” “The Face,” “Studio as Theatre,” and “Essential Forms” — feature a range of works in a variety of media from different points in the artist’s career. Approximately 36 paintings, 26 drawings, 11 bronzes, nine cut-outs, three prints, and an illustrated book by Matisse are showcased alongside about 39 works from his studio collection — many on loan from private collections and publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time.
