Matisse Retrospective Begins in Paris; Copenhagen and New York Next

Art fans in Paris should make a point of visiting the Pompidou Centre, where the new “Matisse: Pairs and Series” exhibit explores how the legendary painter would repeat the same composition again and again, varying color and technique, before considering the project finished.

According to Reuters, the exhibition will run to June 18 in Paris before moving on to Copenhagen’s Statens Museum for Kunst and then the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

It comprises some 60 paintings and 30 drawings, including emblematic works like Matisse’s “Blue Nude” cut-paper series from 1952, four collages labelled I to IV, where he began the last work first then tried three different variations, before coming back to finish his first attempt at the end.

The Pompidou Centre is located at the Place Georges Pompidou in Paris.
