Matisse – Arabesque
More than 100 works by Henri Matisse, including several of his most outstanding masterpieces – exhibited in Italy for the first time on loan from some of the world's leading museums, such as the Tate in London, the Metropolitan and MoMa in New York, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Centre Pompidou and l’Orangerie in Paris, and the leading museums of Philadelphia and Washington, to mention but a few.
Curated by Ester Coen with a scholarly committee comprised of John Elderfield, Remi Labrusse and Olivier Berggruen, the show, "Matisse Arabesque", aims to offer visitors an understanding of the influences of the Orient on the artist, an influence which, through artifice, arabesques and colors, allowed him to suggest a vaster space, a truly plastic space, infusing his compositions with a new breadth, freeing them from all formal constraint, from the need for perspective and from "realism", opening a space filled with vibrant colors, and a novel conception of decorative art resting on the idea of pure surface.
Turning his back on the de-structuring and distortion typical of the contemporary avant-garde, Matisse showed a greater interest in links with the models of "barbaric" art. Decoration became the primary raison d'être for his radical artistic exploration. It was in the interwoven motifs of ancient civilizations that Matisse grasped the principles of depicting a new spatial environment that allowed him to "transcend the intimist painting" of 19th century tradition.
The arabesques and intricate geometrical designs found in the Ottoman world, in Byzantine art, in the Orthodox world and in the early painters whose work he had studied in the Louvre, were all elements that Matisse interpreted in an extraordinarily modern manner, formulating an artistic vocabulary that ignored the precision of natural forms in order to brush with the sublime. To quote the artist: “The jewels or the arabesques never overwhelm my drawings from the model, because these jewels and arabesques form part of my orchestration.”

Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964
In 2008 the Metropolitan Museum in New York opened the first American retrospective dedicated to Italian painter and printmaker Giorgio Morandi since 1957. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Morandi created works that are more than beautiful. His moving still-lifes are imbued with harmony and balance and in the aesthetic of their stillness, they reinforce life. It's remarkable that this reclusive Italian artist who lived in and painted from the same apartment throughout his life gained such recognition. He saw little of the world outside his native Bologna, yet he developed a refined cosmopolitan style that still evokes deep emotion. Morandi stands out among his contemporaries. One art critic explains, “from Giotto and Caravaggio, he learned how to create weight in painting.” He first saw Giotto’s paintings when visiting Florence and Caravaggio’s upon coming to Rome, and in Urbino, he saw the works of Piero della Francesca. These were other influences — Cezanne, Carot and the Futurists — but his style was his own.
