OBJECTS OF AFFECTION
It’s been over 60 years since the world lost Henri Matisse, but there’s something to be said about an artist whose work is still so ubiquitous.
Now, for the first time, “Matisse in the Studio” is focusing on the painter’s beloved – and eclectic – collection of personal objects, and the works they inspired. Painted tables from Algeria, vases from Andalusia and Mboom tribal masks from the Democratic Republic of Congo are only a few of those on display at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, running until November 12. It’s a rare glimpse into Matisse’s beautiful vision derived from the world of objects, and we’re not missing it.
