Matisse and American Art

Matisse and American ArtSponsored by Montclair Art Museum. 3 S. Mountain Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042. 12pm. Matisse and American Art is the first exhibition to examine Henri Matisse's profound impact upon the development of American modern art from 1907 to the present. Featuring paintings, archival objects, sculpture, prints, and works on paper, the exhibition will juxtapose 19 works by the French master with 44 works by American artists, including Max Weber, Alfred Maurer, Maurice Prendergast, Stuart Davis, Richard Diebenkorn, Robert Motherwell, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Romare Bearden, John Baldessari, Sophie Matisse, Faith Ringgold, and others. Matisse’s transformative impact on their works is revealed not only by their adaptations of his palette and pictorial structures but also through their choice and appropriation of his subject matter. This will be the first exhibition to expand Matisse’s impact beyond the typical focus upon the New York School by extending it back to the beginning of the 20th century and forward to the 21st. For more info: https://www.montclairartmuseum.org/exhibition/mati, 973-746-5555. $16-18.
