Exhibition Matisse comme un roman at Centre Pompidou
On the occasion of the hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the birth of Henri Matisse (1869-1954), Centre Pompidou pays tribute to him through an exhibition bringing together essential works that explore the text / image entanglement within his work and offer a unique reading of his creation, to be discovered from October 21, 2020 to February 22, 2021 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Divided into nine chapters, and as many interludes devoted to writing, the exhibition traces Matisse's career along a chronological path, going from his beginnings, around 1890, where the artist is in contact with the masters, struggling with the elaboration of his most personal vocabulary, until the 1950s and his final work, allowing at every moment to gaze at a life lived for art. The Matisse exhibition presents masterpieces from the collections of the National Museum of Modern Art, displayed on an unprecedented scale.
