Matisse, Life in Color at the Indianapolis Museum of Art
"Jazz" by Henri Matisse
French artist Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was well known for his artistically bold uses of color and pattern. But there is also great depth and detail to Matisse’s work, which visitors to the Indianapolis Museum of Art can now see for themselves in “Matisse, Life in Color: Masterworks from The Baltimore Museum of Arts."
This collection of more than 100 works of art comes from the Cone Collection in the Baltimore Museum of Art and features paintings, sculptures, prints and artist books, according to the IMA.
Rebecca Long, the exhibit’s curator, said Matisse is an artist who is not represented very well in the museum’s collection and the mission with “Matisse, Life in Color,” is to allow the people in Indianapolis to dive deeper into Matisse’s career.
