Selections from the Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Collection by Magdalena Dabrowski( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Foundation's gift represents one of the largest additions to the Metropolitan's collection of modern art. Pierre Matisse (19001989), a prominent art dealer in New York, was the younger son of the painter Henri Matisse (French, 18691954). Works by Henri Matisse are the central feature of the collection, though paintings, sculpture, prints, and drawings by members of the School of Paris and others are also represented, including the works of Balthus, Butler, Carrington, Chagall, Delvaux, Derain, Dubuffet, Giacometti, Lam, MacIver, Magritte, Mason, Miró, and Tanguy. The selections illustrated in this publication are arranged in three sections: works done between 1911 and 1942; works by Henri Matisse; and paintings and sculpture after 1943. -- The Metropolitan Museum of Art website

"Pierre Matisse arrived in New York shortly before Christmas 1924 determined to make his mark. At that time, the New York art world was in its formative stages, entirely different from what it was to become by the close of the twentieth century. He was to play a significant role in its establishment. In 1925, the time of the first exhibition, which featured lithographs and drawings by his father, Henri Matisse, there were few galleries and no museums exhibiting contemporary art." "In October 1931 the Pierre Matisse Gallery opened its doors in the Fuller Building on Fifty-seventh Street, just around the corner from the provisional headquarters of the recently instituted Museum of Modern Art. In addition to shows featuring works by such established artists as Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Derain, Pablo Picasso, Georges Rouault, and, of course, the elder Matisse, numerous exhibitions at the Pierre Matisse Gallery were focused around the works of younger, less-known figures, including Joan Miro, Balthus, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Dubuffet. Pierre Matisse not only played a major role in introducing American audiences to the works of Marc Chagall, Yves Tanguy, Roberto Matta, Wifredo Lam, Reg Butler, Raymond Mason, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Francois Rouan, Zao Wou-ki, Manolo Millares, Manuel Rivera, and Antonio Saura but also fostered their critical and popular appreciation. American artists whose work he championed included Alexander Calder, Theodor Roszak, Sam Francis, and Loren MacIver." "By the time of his death in 1989, Pierre Matisse had been instrumental in the creation of a community that encompassed not only the leading artists of the twentieth century but also an impressive roster of distinguished collectors and institutions. The degree to which he enriched the artistic climate of his adopted country cannot be overestimated. This publication documents many of the outstanding works exhibited at the Pierre Matisse Gallery and - drawing upon the Pierre Matisse Gallery Archives, given to the Morgan Library in 1997 - chronicles, through correspondence, ephemera, and photographs, the history of one of the most significant venues of twentieth-century art."--Jacket
