I can think of no other exhibition that has told us so much about what artists do and how they think.--Eric Gibson "The Wall Street Journal "
Matisse in the Studio ...focuses on the artist's relationship with his objects...-- a seaglass green vessel, a Congolese mask, North African tapestries -- paired with the paintings where they appear. The result is a heightened sense of intimacy with his already sensual, summery paintings, and gives a glimpse into the studio -- and mental -- space of the artist.--Nina Maclaughlin "Boston Globe "
As the same rotating cast of inanimate characters appears again and again in the paintings, we realize that what we are seeing is a memory play, a chronicle of the interaction over time between objects and owner.--John Dorfman "Art & Antiques "
...Matisse loved beautiful, well-designed objects and had collected more than 200 by his death in 1954... they served him as visual references that opened his mind to new possibilities in seeing and creating.--Debbie Hagan "Hyperallergic "
