Before even getting to a description of this exhibition I am advising you to see it. At the risk of exposing my tastes as those of an old white man, “The Great Upheaval: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910–1918” curated by the Guggenheim’s Tracey Bashkoff and on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario until the 2nd of March, is among the best major museum shows I’ve seen in the past few years. Granted, I’m into the canon, and furthermore, the exhibiti... [more]

Posted 2/19/13

The prospect of seeing forty-nine of Matisse’s finest works should be enticement enough, however, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has upped the ante by arranging this somewhat thematic exhibition in groupings, which show the painter refining his personal explorations in modernist paintings through endless, subtle variations. Although the pedagogical aspects of this might seem a little staid at first flush, upon close study one becomes entranced by the intricate, reductive logic that lay at the h... [more]

Matisse didn't do things by halves. He did them by twos and threes, sometimes by many more. "Paires et Séries," a stirring exhibition at Centre Pompidou here in Paris shows Matisse to have been someone who tried always to stretch himself, representing the world in the truest possible way, as he saw it, which meant that the truth, or the representation of it, was different depending on the moment in which it was captured. Everything was true and everything changed, and visual truth was, of cou... [more]

In “Matisse: A Celebration of French Poets and Poetry” the current exhibition at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale, Stéphane Mallarmé is quoted on one of the placards as believing that “only after death does the poet become one with poetry.” In his writing, Mallarmé  quested to invoke the otherworldly—quotidian trappings were anti-inspiration. What better place, then, to view Matisse’s exquisite etchings accompanying a 1932 Skira edition of Mallarme’s poems than at the cemetery? It’s all the more intriguing... [more]

From Rainy Day Magazine: Rich with Riches by Carolyn Donovan It came as a surprise to find out that the LOVE stamp from when I was a kid: 1. is actually a sculpture; 2. is higher than your head; 3. is owned by a man who won the America's Cup. Honey, all you need really IS love Courtesy, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston I love seeing the choices other people make: the Honda or the Toyota? Bar Harbor or Chatham? The Monet or the Modiglian...

Chaos and Classicism feels like the forced scholarly sort of show that, were it not for the many wonderful works in the exhibition, would leave a person wondering why anyone would curate such a broad theme that, for all intents and purposes, could have included any number of artworks from any period in history. Concentrating on the years between the wars in France, Italy, and Germany, every work in Chaos and Classicism depicts or references the human figure, during a time when creators and societies...

"Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-1917" at New York MOMA My next stop during my recent New York trip, after Guggenheim Museum, Frick Collection, and Morgan Library & Museum was The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). The main attraction during the time was the special exhibit: Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917, which runs from July 18 to October 11, 2010. MOMA sits informed us thus: In the time between Henri Matisse's (1869–1954) return from Morocco in 1913 and his departure for Nice i... [more]

“They Knew What They Wanted” invokes something in-between a hit-man’s overture and a ‘50s girl-group’s jukebox breakup. But instead the phrase serves as the title of an exhibition that spans four commercial galleries in San Francisco: Altman Siegel, John Berggruen, Fraenkel, and Ratio 3. Each gallery asked a different artist from their roster to select the works from the backrooms, storage shelves, and flat files of all four spaces, yet the results are posited as a single exhibition.

“Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913 – 1917” at the Art Institute of Chicago centers around Bathers By A River (1909 – 17), a masterpiece painting in the museum’s collection. The show focuses on a period of five years in the artist’s life filled with experimentation and exploration of what he called the “methods of modern construction,” a phrase repeated ad infinitum throughout the exhibition’s wall texts. The dates of 1913 – 17 seem odd because the timeline of the exhibition begins with 1907... [more]

Showing at the Paul Thiebaud Gallery in North Beach, September 9th through November 8, is the thirteenth installment of Twenty-Five Treasures. The collection is a hodge-podge of exceptional objects and paintings of different styles from different continents. From Matisse, Rousseau, Morandi and Gorky to Ed Musante, Eileen David, and various other contemporary artists, the collection is eclectic to say the least.   Although it tickles the funny bone to see works by historical figures such as Ro...
