Product story

I have worked all my life before the same objects…
The object is an actor. A good actor can have a part in ten different plays;
an object can play a role in ten different pictures.

Henri Matisse

This Matisse in the Studio softback exhibition catalogue includes his key works alongside the eclectic range of objects that Matisse took inspiration from throughout the decades, from Buddhist statuary to North African furniture and textiles.
