Synopsis: Lavishly produced in oversize format, here is the complete illustrated catalogue of a landmark new exhibition devoted to the artist--the largest ever assembled--to be held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from September through January. Includes biographical notes, a chronology, and introductions to each major period of Matisse's career. 320 colorplates reproduce every painting and cutout in the exhibition; 92 black-and-white plates illustrate the sculptures, drawings, and prints; and 180 illustrations show related works not in the exhibition.
From Publishers Weekly:
Reproducing more than 400 artworks (320 in color), this hefty catalogue of an exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art documents the largest and most ambitious Matisse retrospective ever assembled. In his exciting introductory essay, MoMA curator Elderfield, who organized the exhibit, interprets the artist as a painter of metaphors, signs and analogies that pointed to an internal world of the imagination. No mere hedonist, Matisse mistrusted visual sensations and aimed at a mode of representation that had the clarity of a text, notes Elderfield, who brilliantly deconstructs the artist's pictorial language. Elderfield shows that the myth of a Golden Age, expressed in images of luxury and erotic fulfillment, is a key influence on a man who decisively altered the way we look at pictures. While the focus here is on painting, numerous drawings, sculptures, prints and stained-glass window designs are also reproduced.
