Side­long Glances


Known for its dis­plays of works by Pablo Pi­casso, Paul Klee, and Henri Matisse, Mu­seum Berggruen (p. 43) has launched a two-part se­ries pair­ing the work of two artists to cre­ate new dis­course through the con­trast­ing styles. The first in­stall­ment in the Side­ways se­ries, from now un­til 22 Fe­bru­ary, pairs Henri Matisse with French artist Raoul Dufy. Matisse’s works of oil paint­ing, cut-outs, and draw­ings en­cir­cle Dufy’s sin­gu­lar ce­ramic work de­signed to hold small fo­liage as well as his sketches and paint­ings. This se­ries of un­usual jux­ta­po­si­tions of art­work pro­vides a widened per­spec­tive not ex­pe­ri­enced in the sin­gu­lar dis­plays typ­i­cally seen in exhibitions.
