matisse-for-exhMatisse’s Amours: Illustrations of Pierre de Ronsard’s Love Poems

Norton Simon Museum of Art. 411 W. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91105. (626) 449.6840

The exhibit includes 25 pages of a rare copy of Matisse’s anthology of Ronsard’s 16th Century poetry. It took seven years for Matisse to complete this project which he undertook while his wife was imprisoned and his daughter was in a concentration camp. Perhaps Matisse found consolation in the romantic and sometimes melancholy blossoms of Ronsard’s poetry.
