October 12, 2014 - February 8, 2015
This October, MoMA presents Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs, the largest and most extensive presentation of the artist's cut-outs ever assembled. Approximately 100 examples from this innovative body of work—made beginning in the 1940s when Matisse turned to cut paper as his primary medium—will be shown alongside drawings, illustrated books, stained glass, and textiles. Among the masterpieces on view will be The Swimming Pool (1952), a monumental cut-out originally made for the artist's dining room, which has been newly conserved and is being exhibited for the first time in more than 20 years.
