In the 1930s the pioneering French artist Henri Matisse began to produce book illustrations and artist books. Over the next two decades, he completed a dozen book projects, working with a variety of printing techniques to explore the relationship between image and text—both visually and thematically. This exhibition, provided by the Bank of America Art in our Communities program, presents four of Matisse’s art books, revealing the artist’s dynamic and multifaceted relationship with literature, creativity, and visual expression.
