Lovely collection of Matisse works. This is a wonderful book for the quantity and quality of the color plates alone. I haven't even gotten to the text yet, but I'm thrilled with the book. This item doesn't belong on this page.

Lavishly produced in oversize format, here is the complete illustrated catalogue of a landmark new exhibition devoted to the artist--the largest ever assembled--to be held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, from September through January. Includes biographical notes, a chronology, and introductions to each major period of Matisse's career. 320 colorplates reproduce every painting and cutout in the exhibition; 92 black-and-white plates illustrate the sculptures, drawings, and prints; and 180 illustrations show related works not in the exhibition.

This book was purchased by Barbara Barrick. I am the artist in our family. For some months I have been studying Henri Matisse and his art. I have read other publications by John Elderfield and he is an excellent art historian and a very readable writer. This is a catalogue for an exhibition. It is very heavy and a bit awkward to hold, but I will be enjoying reading it for a long time.

Exactly what I wanted. When the Matisse show opened at the Museum of Modern Art there was no way that I could afford this book on a students salary. A friend of mine was talking about Matisse and I then remembered that there was the retrospective. Unfortunately it was out of print. I purchased on from an eBay seller. It's wonderful. The commentary adds to the beauty of the paintings. If you find one it is well worth the money. Beware of library editions as the tend to be worn and the spine cracked.

My mother and I were taken back our Matisse book was gone for good, but I found this new and the same soft cover oversize format as at the actual show over 20 years ago. What a great find. Thanks.
Bragis
I was have thoroughly enjoyed the images in the text, which was my primary reason for purchasing it. They cover a broad range of Matisse's body of work in depth from the early to later periods.

A MUST for all lovers of Matisse. I bought it after seeing the current Matisse show at the Met, because I was remembering this great show from many years ago.

Too late to see the show, but still time to enjoy it!

this is a 12 year old book, yet still in very good condition. for the price i paid, it is a great deal. it is a treasure of my book collection.

I ordered this through Amazon Marketplace, and what I got instead of this book was the little leaflet that accompanied the show -- vastly overpriced, and not what I wanted. But I didn't send it back.
Matisse is an artist that will grow with you. I often return to this or other Matisse books and find ways of seeing painting that I have never contemplated before. What's nice about this Retrospective is that it does a first rate job of covering the artists entire life in detail.

When I first got this book, I skipped over most of the writing and just soaked in the pictures (The quality of reproductions here is very well done). What will engage you in the long run are the thousands of notes that the compilers have used to compliment the pictures. Most of these notes I myself do not find of interest, though they are helpful if you would like to know of his personal life. But a percentage of these deal with the paintings and how they were created. For myself, it was illuminating to see photo documentation of Matisses work as it was transformed over time.

This is not a book that will help you gain access to the deeper/scholarly realms of Matisse. I would have loved to have had the compilers here introduce every drawing and print that the artist had completed over his life. Most of the secondary work of Matisse is not to be found here. On the other hand, I don't think that most people would be interested in seeing sketch book work.

If you like Matisse and want the book that does the best job of introducing the artist, this is the one to get.
