The Denver Art Museum (DAM) will host the exhibition Matisse and Friends: Selected Masterworks from the National Gallery of Art, October 12, 2014 through February 8, 2015. Matisse and Friends will showcase fourteen paintings from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., by artists Henri Matisse, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy, Georges Braque and Kees Van Dongen.
“Matisse and Friends is a perfect complement to the dazzle of Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century on view upstairs,” said Christoph Heinrich, Director of the Denver Art Museum. “The DAM has created an in-gallery oasis for our visitors to bask in the visual delight of these vibrant paintings.”
The artists featured in Matisse and Friends shocked the art world with their raw approach and triggered a succession of innovative movements in modern art. Working in and around Paris at the turn of the 20th century, these artists were part of a creative community that sought to redefine painting, favoring an expressive style that emphasized loose brushwork and bold colors.
