Matisse - Bonnard - Städel Museum Frankfurt am Main

‘Long Live Painting!’
The Frankfurt Städel Museum present two outstanding artists

>> Henri Matisse * 1869 Le Cateau-Chembrésis1954
>> Pierre Bonnard * 1867 Fontenay-aux-Roses1947 Le Cannet

in an exhibition (13.09.2017 - 14.01.2018) that is the first in Germany to bring these key modern masters together. At the heart of the comprehensive presentation is the friendship between the two French artists which lasted for over forty years. Both painters shared a preference for the same range of subjects: interiors, still lifes, landscapes and the female nude. With a selection of more than a hundred paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints, the exhibition opens a dialogue between Matisse and Bonnard and offers new perspectives on the development of the European avant-garde from the beginning of the twentieth century to the end of the Second World War.
