Matisse in the Studio

Matisse in the Studio is currently taking place at the Royal Academy of Arts, offering you the chance to step into the artists studio. The exhibition promises to be more engaging than the usual with the aim to give a real insight into the mind of one of modern arts icons. The space has been filled, just like his original studio, with the treasured objects collected by the artist on his travels around the world, which proved to be a profound source of inspiration. This event offers the viewer a rare opportunity to see original Matisse works intermingling with his collection to provide a rich portrait of the artists private world.

Matisse went through a number of phases and styles during his career, producing a very diverse body of work, some of which can be seen below:

Paysage à Collioure

Madonna and Child

Moroccan Cafe

Brook with Aloes
