Docent Lecture: "Matisse from SFMOMA", by Rita Dunlay

April 19, 2014 - 2:15pm3:15pm

Celebrating the Bay Area’s longstanding enthusiasm for Henri Matisse, Matisse from SFMOMA traces four decades of the artist’s career—from his early, Cézanne-inspired still lifes to his richly patterned and brightly colored figural paintings made in the 1920s and 1930s.

This intimate exhibition features 23 paintings, drawings, and bronzes from the internationally acclaimed collection of works by Matisse at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, joined by two paintings and two drawings from the Fine Arts Museums' own important Matisse holdings.

Intimate Impressionism includes nearly 70 treasured paintings by 19th-century avant-garde artists. The exhibition features a selection of intimately scaled Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, still lifes, portraits, and landscapes whose charm and fluency invite close scrutiny. Included are significant works by Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, and Vincent van Gogh. Many paintings in the exhibition were displayed in domestic interiors, and they often became gifts shared among friends.
