Matisse in the Studio

On April 9, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston opened Matisse in the Studio, the first major international exhibition to examine not just the paintings, but the objects painted. Matisse's home and studio were notoriously dynamic, packed with stimulating objects, vibrant colors and seductive textures - all of which made it into the work in one way or another. "Yellow Odalisque" (1937) is reproduced from the deluxe, linen-bound catalog to the show, which features photographs of the objects alongside the paintings in which they appear. "Here and there," curator Georges Salles wrote in 1952, Matisse's work found "reflections in marble, in gilt wood, faïnce, Oriental cloths—a whole curio shop for some daily magic: apparatus of a fantastic laboratory of visual alchemy."
