This installation of prints by Henri Matisse, all part of the Claribel and Etta Cone Collection, will focus on two aspects of the artist's favorite subject, of which he never tired: the female form. The first group consists of seated women in interior scenes, many of them in quiet, pensive modes. The other group - of odalisques, or reclining nudes - comes from a long tradition in art to which Matisse added his own touch. His mastery of line and love of pattern are clearly evident throughout the works and the fact that he used certain models frequently is readily apparent to viewers.
