DESCRIPTION

The BMA presents the first exhibition to extensively explore American artist Max Weber's formative years in Paris from fall 1905 to December 1908, when he transformed his painting style from classical representations of figures to bold interpretations of cubism and futurism. More than 30 paintings, prints, and drawings-many of them loaned by the Estate of Max Weber and other public and private collections-showcase the artist as one of the most important American modernist painters. The exhibition features several Weber paintings from 1909 to 1915 from the BMA's collection, as well as works from Weber's personal collection by his teacher Henri Matisse and his friends Pablo Picasso and Henri Rousseau.
