  • Description

    MORE THAN 150 PICTURES BY MATISSE, PLUS A NUMBER OF HIS SCULTINGS ARE ON VIEW IN THE HAYWARD GALLERY IN LONDON. THE EXHIBITION IS PRESENTED BY THE ARTS COUNCIL AND IS THE FIRST SIZEABLE EXHIBITION OF HIS WORKS EVERY TO GO ON SHOW IN BRITAIN.

    THE EXHIBITION IS AS COMPREHENSIVE IN ITS COVERAGE OF MATISSE'S LIFE AS CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW - A LARGE NUMBER OF MATISSE WORKS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR BORROWING. TO MAKE UP THIS COLLECTION, WORKS BY THE FRENCH MASTER HAVE BEEN BORROWED FROM COLLECTIONS IN EUROPE, THE UNITED STATES AND THE SOVIET UNION. THE ARTIST'S FAMILY ALSO LENT A NUMBER OF THEIR PAINTINGS.

    FOURTEEN YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH, MATISSE IS REGARDED BY MANY EXPERTS AS THE GREATEST PAINTER OF THE 20TH. CENTURY. THIS LONDON EXHIBITION, RANGING OVER THE WHOLE COMPASS OF HIS WORK, GIVES A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO JUDGE HIM.
