Matisse/Diebenkorn

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

11 Mar - 29 May 2017

Presenting a new view of two of the twentieth century’s most extraordinary painters, Matisse/Diebenkorn is the first major exhibition to explore the profound inspiration Richard Diebenkorn (1922–1993) found in the work of Henri Matisse (1869–1954). It brings together 100 seminal paintings and drawings—40 by Matisse and 60 by Diebenkorn—that reveal the connections between the two artists in subject, style, colour, and technique. The exhibition unfolds across the arc of Diebenkorn’s career—from early abstractions, to his majestic Ocean Park series—all in direct dialogue with works that he knew and admired by Matisse. Find out more about the ‘Matisse/Diebenkorn’ exhibition from SFMOMA’s website.
