MATISSE & PICASSO
The extraordinary relationship between Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso is one of the most important and eventful narratives in modern art. Between them, they set the course of Western art history in the first half of the 20th century, where Renaissance one-point perspective and realism were abandoned for radical ideas about depicting the third dimension. Their artistic rivalry and collaboration began the new story of modernism. This publication examines the paths of these two artists over the years and the way they each responded to the other's work.
