Event Description
Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs

On view now through February 10, 2015

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—are shown alongside drawings, illustrated books, stained glass, and textiles. Among the masterpieces on view is The Swimming Pool (1952), a monumental cut-out originally made for the artist's dining room, which has been newly conserved and is being exhibited for the first time in more than 20 years.

MoMA Members and accompanied guests can enter the exhibition by showing a valid membership card or guest ticket; timed tickets are not required.  Present your membership card and/or member guest admission ticket at the Museum entrance. Not a member? Join today!

Member Early Hour: 9:30-10:30 a.m. daily through February 10, 2015. Open to MoMA members (with the exception of Global members) and their guests.
