We are continuing today with more from the “Matisse in the Studio” exhibit at Museum of Fine Art Boston.

As I mentioned yesterday, it was AMAZING!  Here you can click to check out more information.   From the MFA-Boston website:  “Inspiration is everywhere!  Henri Matisse—who revolutionized 20th-century art—believed that a treasured group of objects was instrumental to his studio practice. “Matisse in the Studio” is the first major international exhibition to examine the importance of Matisse’s personal collection of objects, offering unprecedented insight into the great artist’s creativity. See these rare pairings of Matisse’s major works with objects of inspiration in “Matisse in the Studio” in its only US venue at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.”

Henri Matisse, Odalisque Seated with Arms Raised, Green Striped Chair, oil on canvas, 1923

Every time I go to the National Gallery I see something new even though I must have been there a couple dozen times now.  And over the years my taste in art has developed and changed.  I am drawn to post impressionism more and more.  And Matisse has become a very favorite so I always enjoy seeing his use of color and space.  And then I discovered a Gauguin painting of Peonies (my favorite flower) that I had never seen before.  What a treat!
