Archant mag­a­zine sub­scribers are in­vited to an ex­clu­sive pri­vate view on Satur­day 9 Septem­ber 2017, 6:30pm - 9pm

Join us at the Royal Academy of Arts for a drinks re­cep­tion and pri­vate view of the un­miss­able ex­hi­bi­tion, Matisse in the Stu­dio.

This sump­tu­ous ex­hi­bi­tion of­fers a rare glimpse into the artist’s per­sonal col­lec­tion of ob­jects, as well as the paint­ings, sculp­tures and draw­ings it in­spired. Matisse drew his col­lec­tion from the far cor­ners of the world: Bud­dhist stat­u­ary from Thai­land, Ba­mana fig­ures from Mali, fur­ni­ture and tex­tiles from North Africa. Rarely of ma­te­rial value, these ob­jects were none­the­less pre­cious. Seen side by side with the works they in­flu­enced, they re­veal how Matisse’s vi­sion of rich and mas­ter­ful en­ergy first stemmed from the col­lage of pat­terns and rhythms which he found in the world of ob­jects.
