Henri Matisse drew constantly, and his direct, elegant draftsmanship has become a hallmark of modern art. This exhibition features Matisse drawings from across 50 years:  1900-1950. We thank Ellsworth Kelly for making a brilliant and discerning selection and for conceiving a stunning presentation of these drawings. We further thank The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation for generously making the Foundation collection available to him for this project.

Guest-curated by Ellsworth Kelly
