Patrons viewing Matisse's Purple Robe with Anemones

MFA Patrons viewing Matisse’s “Purple Robe with Anemones”

I checked out the show “Matisse in the Studio” at the MFA in Boston this past weekend. The MFA is the only U.S. stop for this international show, and it’s definitely worth checking out. Many of the paintings are paired with the actual objects Matisse painted them from in his studio. It’s a blast to see the object first hand and then see one or more various paintings featuring that object, and to be able to see how Matisse portrayed it.

Personally, being more of a fan of representational art, I greatly prefer Matisse’s earlier works (some of which can be seen in the beginning portion of the exhibit), but even as such it is great to see how his style evolved and how he obviously continued to push the envelope throughout his career.

The show runs from April 9 thru July 9, 2017 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
