Description
Henri Matisse lived at the Villa Le Rêve in the south of France from 1943 to 1948. Here he created a sensuous world, bringing to his studio the particular objects—favorite jugs, vases, shells, fabrics, tables, and chairs—that so often appeared in his paintings. "All my life I have worked in this way in front of these same objects," he admitted. "They give me the power of their reality by engaging my mind with all that they have experienced for me and with me." Hélène Adant, a young Russian-born photographer, often came to visit her cousin Lydia Delectorskaya, who was Matisse's model and assistant from 1935 onward. Adant's photographs form a unique series of freeze-frames that reveal the nature of Matisse's preparation for his art and his life there. The 91 captioned images here include black and white photographs and sketches and a handful of color reproductions of Matisse's finished pieces.
