Again in Madrid, another art highlight for the summer season. The Thyssen-Bornemisza collection presents an anthology of Matisse after his first fauvist period, encompassing his move to Nice in 1917 until the outbreak of WWII.
“a beautiful and intense journey through paintings and sculptures, halfway between the introspection and experimentalism, contemplating with lucid serenity the convulse Europe of the first half of the 20th century.”Matisse created very appealing art with his personal combination of classicism and a modern approach to colour and composition.
More information here and at the Thyssen museum website and El País special coverage. The exhibition will be open from june 9 until september 20.
