The Museum Thyssen In Madrid Hosts An Exhibition Of Henri Matisse

Matisse constitutes one of the great names of 20th century painting. Why Thysen Museum will devote an unpublished until now exhibition about a little known era of the painter, the central stretch of his career (the turbulent period of interwar period from 1917 to 1941). It was then when the artist fled from Paris to Nice and enjoyed a great change in his painting through creative isolation and in the light of the French Riviera. From 9 June until 20 September you can enjoy this sample with 80 paintings, drawings and sculptures, unpublished so far in Spain, from 50 museums and private collections around the world under the title of Matisse, 1917-1941. Exposure analyses in-depth the keys that I use Matisse in this period, when the artistic climate of the early avant-gardes had disappeared. Since in troubled times people bought less art, Matisse made a decisive turn in his painting to adapt to the new situation, replacing the works of large dimensions as the dance by easel painting.

Thanks to this change, Matisse was concentrated in the pictorial language, weight, density and the depth of the figures, fleeing the flat forms and the traditional perspective of cubism. In 1927 Matisse leaves the painting aside to make a trip to Tahiti, period in which does not draw anything until he was commissioned a mural by Alfred Barnes, in which he worked for three years and returned to play the theme of the dance. The exhibition is divided into different stages of the life of the painter, which are reflected in different routes: paint and time, with pictures of his early years in Nice; Landscapes, balconies and gardens where explores outer space; Intimacy and ornament for lifes; Background and figure, with the nude female like protagonist and murals, where he works in a poem by Mallarme called Une sonore vaine et ligne monotone.
