Matisse at the Walker
The work of a true master will be on display at the Walker Art Gallery from 21 October to 15 April. Starting in the 1930s, Henri Matisse spent over two decades illustrating art books, each issued in a limited edition and signed by the artist. The Art Books of Henri Matisse includes text and illustrations from four of Matisse’s most important books: Poésies de Stéphane Mallarmé, 1932; Pasiphaé-Chant de Minos (les Crétois), 1944; Jazz, 1947, and Poémes de Charles d’Orléans, 1950. Also on display will be a number of artists’ books from the Walker Art Gallery's permanent collection by artists such as Ed Ruscha, Derek Boshier, Gilbert & George, Tom Phillips and Jeff Nuttall. This exhibition is provided by the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Art in our Communities programme.
