Stedelijk Museum and sponsor Rabobank mark Matisse-exhibition
With over 100 works on loan from 35 leading international museums including the Tate, MoMA, and the Pushkin State Museum in Moscow, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam presents the most comprehensive survey of Matisse ever shown in the Netherlands. Covering over 21,500 square feet The Oasis of Matisse is one of the largest-ever exhibitions in the Stedelijk’s history. Rabobank Amsterdam is the sponsor of the exhibition.
The Stedelijk conceived a unique exhibition concept for The Oasis of Matisse: the permanent collection on the ground floor is enriched with a selection of Matisse masterpieces, creating surprising combinations with the work of his contemporaries, teachers and followers. As one of the founders of modern art, Henri Matisse (1868-1954) is among the most-admired artists of the twentieth century. His favourite subjects include interiors with Eastern nudes, colourful fabrics, carpets, potted plants and idyllic landscapes. The exhibition starts on Friday 27 March. Director, Beatrix Ruf, opens trading.
