One of the most striking things at the Matisse in the Studio exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston was the fabrics he used in his works.

He had some rich textiles with interesting shapes and colors that he used as backdrops and drapes in many of his paintings.

Sometimes he just used the shapes and designs and changed up the colors to suit his need.

It was fascinating to see them side by side with the paintings.  This may be the best exhibit I have ever visited.

It was just amazing!  I have so many more photos but I think with the ones posted earlier this week as well as the ones today you have gotten a good idea of what the exhibit was about and how Matisse went about his process.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

What struck me most as I saw the Matisse in The Studio exhibit is how he used his collection of objects time and time again in his paintings.  He had a group of items that were special to him and often put them in his still-life set-ups.  In this series today you will see his chocolate pots.

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.”

20170606_074521I made a day trip to Boston yesterday (yes, it’s a long way for a day trip) to see the Matisse exhibit.  What an amazing display!!!  I admit that I am a BIG fan of Matisse.   But anyone who appreciates art and creating it would love this exhibit.

The premise of the exhibit is to feature the many objects, fabrics, furniture and more that Matisse collected over the years and how he used them in many of his paintings.

Over the next few days I will attempt to share with you some of the wonderful things I saw.

Still a couple of seats open if you are up for it.  Click here to register.
