Co-organized with the Baltimore Museum of Art, this exhibition features more than 90 paintings and drawings by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) that illustrate the French modern master’s enduring influence on the post-war American painter. Diebenkorn’s long engagement with Matisse’s work is among the most productive instances of one painter looking at another’s paintings in the history of 20th-century art. This exhibition presents the trajectory of Diebenkorn’s long and successful career with some of the powerful works by Matisse that the younger artist would have seen.
This exhibition is also on view at the Baltimore Museum of Art (October 23, 2016 – January 29, 2017).
