The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art announces Henri Matisse: The Red Studio, an exhibition focusing on the genesis and history of Matisse’s The Red Studio (1911), a painting that has remained among MoMA’s most important works since it was acquired in 1949.

This exhibition will reunite the artworks shown in The Red Studio for the first time since they left Matisse’s studio. Henri Matisse: The Red Studio will also include never-before-seen archival material and related paintings and drawings. Following its presentation at MoMA, the exhibition will be shown at the SMK – The National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen from October 13, 2022, through February 26, 2023.
