You Must See This Matisse Exhibition!

Roberta Smith says in the New York Times and, having seen the exhibition, I completely concur: ‘Matisse’s rigorous yet unfettered evolution is the subject of “Matisse: In Search of True Painting” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the most thrillingly instructive exhibitions about this painter, or painting in general, that you may ever see. As ravishing as it is succinct, it skims across this French master’s long, productive career with a mere 49 paintings, but nearly all are stellar if not pivotal works.’
