This exhibition of drawings by Henri Matisse showcases the mastery of draftsmanship by two of the most significant artists of the twentieth century: Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015). Curated by Kelly in 2014, the exhibition speaks to his admiration for Matisse, as well as to the centrality of drawing in both artists' practices. Accompanying the forty-five rarely exhibited works by Matisse, Kelly selected nine of his own lithographic drawings that derive from his time in France when the American artist studied Matisse's sketches and studies of nature and human figures. Join UMMA docents as they explore this artistic dialogue, seeing one artist through the eyes of another.
