Published to accompany a major exhibition at Kunsthaus Zürich marking the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, Matisse—Metamorphosis explores this process and its reciprocal effects and sheds new light on a lesser-known aspect of Matisse’s oeuvre. Bringing together documents that reveal Matisse’s diverse sources of inspiration for his sculptures, such as nude photographs and works by African and ancient artists, the book also includes many photographs of Matisse at work as sculptor, providing insight into his practice.
