Spanning six decades of Matisse’s prolific career, with an emphasis on the artist’s earliest works, this special exhibition features 50 works of painting and sculpture, 30 prints, and the artist’s book Jazz.
Most of the artworks are drawn from the legendary Cone Collection, assembled by two Baltimore sisters–Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone–with an unrivaled passion for modernism and Matisse.
A companion exhibition featuring works by Matisse in the MIA’s collection will further enrich this magnificent body of work.
This exhibition is organized and circulated by The Baltimore Museum of Art.
