DESCRIPTION

Henri Matisse may be best known as a painter and sculptor, but this exhibition sheds light on his prolific and innovative career as a printmaker.

Drawn from the extraordinary collection of Matisse prints that once belonged to the artist’s son Pierre, Matisse as Printmaker includes approximately 63 etchings, monotypes, aquatints, lithographs, linocuts in black and white, and two-color prints—examples of every printmaking medium that Matisse utilized. With its rich variety of media and subject matter, it celebrates an under-studied aspect of Matisse’s oeuvre and underscores the importance of printmaking for the artist.
