Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, whose stylistic innovations fundamentally altered the course of modern art. In a career spanning six decades, his achievements in painting, sculpture, drawing, graphic arts, book illustration, and paper cutouts earned the acclaim of collectors, critics, and several generations of younger artists. Working during a time defined by rapid change, Matisse shifted the course of art, and in turn, the way we see the world.
Matisse, Life in Color is organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art, in association with the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Presented by the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation with additional support provided by JPMorgan Chase and the Alliance of the IMA.
