Matisse In The Barnes Foundation 3 Volumes
This impressive Matisse In The Barnes Foundation three volume set celebrates the entire extraordinary career of Henri Matisse.
Cased in sunshine yellow, these books contain over 600 vivid colour reproductions alongside essays exploring the life of Barnes the collector and iconic works such as the monumental Le Bonheur de Vivre.
Matisse in the Barnes Foundation... may be one of the most gorgeous coffee-table books you will ever own.
As it happens, Matisse in the Barnes Foundation is much more than a pretty face. Once you’ve read the 90,000-word essay by Yve-Alain Bois, as well as the insightful commentaries on all the paintings by independent art historians Claudine Grammont and Karen K. Butler, you may never see the former Fauve’s art the same way again.
Edited by Yve-Alain Bois with contributions from Karen Butler, Claudine Grammont, Barbara A. Buckley, Jennifer Mass and Thomas Primeau.
