Matisse in LA

If you're a Matisse fan, don't miss the exhibition at LACMA:

Matisse on Paper

Through April 20, 2008 | Ahmanson Building, Plaza Level

Besides being one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, Henri Matisse (1869–1954) was also one of its greatest draftsmen. The works on paper in this gallery, covering nearly thirty years (from the 1920s to the 1950s) of the artist's long career, display the full range of his facility with charcoal, graphite, and ink, as well as with the sister arts of printmaking and collage, both of which he treated as extensions of drawing.>>
