"Matisse: In Search of True Painting" at the Met

Friday, January 25, 2013

Curator Rebecca Rabinow talks about the exhibition “Matisse: In Search of True Painting,” on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art through March 17.

Throughout his career, he questioned, repainted, and reevaluated his work. This show demonstrates his need to progress methodically from one painting to the next.
