Billed as the largest exhibition of Henri Matisse (1869-1954) to be held in the Netherlands, this show at the Stedelijk features Matisse masterpieces alongside work by his contemporaries.
The exhibition is unconventional in the sense that the Matisse works are displayed intermittently among the museum’s permanent collection on the ground floor. This results in the viewer being presented with unexpected and stimulating comparisons between the work of Matisse and that of his peers, teachers, and followers.
On display are paintings, sculpture and work on paper by the French Modernist pioneer, including the monumental paper cut-outs The Parakeet and The Mermaid.
Tues, Wed 11.00-17.00, Thurs 11.00-22.00, Fri-Sun 10.00-18.00
