Art museum to show Matisse works

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Museum of Art recently announced that it will host a major exhibition of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by the great French artist, Henri Matisse (1869-1954) from Oct. 11 to Jan. 12, 2014.

The exhibition is drawn almost entirely from The Baltimore Museum of Art's (BMA) Cone Collection, which is one of the most comprehensive collections of Matisse's art in the world. "Matisse, Life in Color: Masterworks" from The Baltimore Museum of Art is expected to draw large crowds from throughout the region like past exhibitions "Gifts to the Tsars" (2001) and "Roman Art from the Louvre" (2007).

"We are delighted to bring some of the most significant works from this renowned collection to Indianapolis and give our community this rare opportunity to see such an extraordinary array of work by this important artist. Henri Matisse's strong use of color and pattern was incredibly influential among avant-garde artists of the 20th century, and his work remains a touchstone for many artists working today. I have no doubt that his works will not only dazzle visitors with their sheer beauty, but also will inspire them to think about art in new ways," said Charles L. Venable, Ph.D., The Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO.

"This exhibition will be an incredible asset to the IMA and offers our residents a chance to see firsthand the works of this renowned artist," said Mayor Greg Ballard. "Arts and culture are an important experience in people's lives and contribute to the vibrancy of a community. Opportunities such as this enhance quality of life in Indianapolis for our residents and attract visitors who significantly impact our local tourism industry and economy."

Formed by two sisters from Baltimore, Dr. Claribel Cone (1864-1929) and Miss Etta Cone (1870-1949), the Cone Collection forms the core of the BMA's modern art holdings and is regarded as one of the world's preeminent collections of modern art. "Matisse, Life in Color" is organized and circulated by The Baltimore Museum of Art and features nearly 80 works of art from its permanent collection, including paintings, sculptures, prints, and artist books.
