exciting news for Boston area art lovers! a Henri Matisse exhibit is coming to the Museum of Fine Arts this April. spending an afternoon at the MFA is always a treat, and i am super excited for this one to open. titled "Matisse in Studio", you will be able to explore the French artist's creative process, and see how objects from his studio served as inspiration for his famous pieces of art.
Matisse was greatly inspired by his surroundings (something i think most of us can relate to), and April's exhibition will be the first that offers a side by side comparison of his artwork to the actual items they were inspired by. interesting, right?
Matisse's work is bright and often filled with patterns, like his iconic seaweed-like cutouts (above).
the countdown to april begins!
