> DESCRIPTION

We are proud to present an exhibition of art books by one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Henri Matisse (1869-1954), on public display for the first time in the UK.

The exhibition comprises 63 framed original illustrations with text from four of Matisse’s most significant books, including his famous 'Jazz' (1947), one of the most celebrated artists’ books in the history of modern art.

These works are part of Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s extensive art collection, and have been loaned to the Gallery through the company’s Art in our Communities ® programme as part of a commitment to share its artworks with the wider public.

Also on display will be a number of artists’ books from the Walker Art Gallery's permanent collection by artists such as Ed Ruscha, Derek Boshier, Gilbert & George, Tom Phillips and Jeff Nuttall.
