Library Journal - Library Journal
This book is a joy. The catalog of the very successful National Gallery exhibition of what had traditionally been considered a low in Matisse's work, it is full of good things: Cowart's thoroughly documented and well-illustrated chronology; Fourcade's essay on Matisse's struggles to reinvent his work as a mature artist; 175 pages of beautiful, thematically grouped color plates; and the meticulous catalog of the show. In spite of the critics, European and American collectors in the Twenties were eagerly buying these glowing still-lifes, interiors, and odalisques. The photographs accompanying Margrit Hahnloser-Ingold's essay on these collectors offer a rare look at installations and personalities. In these days of high book prices, this is a good buy.
