Presents the work of Henri Matisse through his influences, friendships, contemporaries and connections, juxtaposing Matisse's pieces with those of other artists, such as Picasso and Braque, placing each work in its context.
The masterpieces gathered here are presented in the artistic context of their time. What is being proposed here is not, therefore, the master of Dance isolated in his ivory tower, but a Matisse in connection with his time, through his friendships, the abundant and fruitful exchanges with his contemporaries.
"...Experience the full scope of Matisse’s extraordinary career through nearly fifty of his paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints, dating from the late nineteenth century to after World War II." - Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
