One of the undisputed masters of 20th century art, Henri Matisse (1869–1954) is renowned for the exquisite delicacy of his drawn line as much as for the intense brilliance of his colour. His etchings are remarkable for the fact that they preserve the vivacity and clarity of his drawing, giving them an immediacy that is especially striking in dialogue with the etchings of Rembrandt.
The core of this exhibition is a group of etchings drawn together by the legendary London collector and dealer John Kasmin. The selection offers a concise, perfect and intense immersion in the achievement of one of the greatest draughtsmen of all time.
