Matisse and Picasso achieved extraordinary prominence during their lifetimes. They have become cultural icons, standing not only for different kinds of art but also for different ways of living. Matisse, known for his restraint and intense sense of privacy, for his decorum and discretion, created an art that transcended daily life and conveyed a sensuality that inhabited an abstract and ethereal realm of being. In contrast, Picasso became the exemplar of intense emotionality, of theatricality, of art as a kind of autobiographical confession that was often charged with violence and explosive eroticism. In Matisse and Picasso , Jack Flam explores the compelling, competitive, parallel lives of these two artists and their very different attitudes toward the idea of artistic greatness, toward the women they loved, and ultimately toward their confrontations with death.

Matisse and Picasso have long been seen as the twin giants of modern art. In spite of their rivalry, each came to acknowledge the other as his only true equal. In later life Matisse commented that 'Picasso sees everything', and Picasso stated that 'All things considered, there is only Matisse.' This book explores their artistic relationship, revealing it to be much closer and more complex than has previously been understood. An introduction by John Golding explains how the work of each artist both inspired and provoked the other. Thirty-four groups of works exploring the artistic encounters of Matisse and Picasso throughout the course of their careers are analysed in illuminating texts by the six curators. There is also an extensive chronology, the fruit of new archival research. The exhibition is a collaboration between Tate Modern in London, the Reunion des Musees Nationaux/Musee Picasso with the Musee National d'Art Moderne in Paris, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

When Matisse and Picasso first met in the spring of 1906, Matisse was already crowned "King of the Fauves" and Picasso was poised to challenge the leadership of the avant-garde. Although the two artists never became intimate friends, they were in regular contact for the last 20 years of Matisse's life, and their friendship became much warmer when Picasso moved to the South of France in 1946. This lavishly illustrated book provides a fascinating account of the evolving personal relationship of the two artists, and in doing so it challenges the popular notion of intense rivalry and personal antipathy, revealing instead evidence of their mutual respect and admiration.

Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso have long been seen as the twin giants of modern art. Despite their rivalry, each came to acknowledge the other as his only true equal: Matisse would eventually say, "Picasso sees everything," while for Picasso, "All things considered, there is only Matisse." This book is one of two produced to accompany a major exhibition on the two artists' work. The first book is the exhibition's 400-page catalogue Matisse Picasso. Looking at Matisse and Picassois a shorter study, providing a general introduction to the artists and comparing a representative selection of their works. The illustrations have been selected to demonstrate the visual relationships in Matisse's and Picasso's art in a clear and dramatic way, and the brief texts, written by members of the staff of the Museum of Modern Art's Department of Education, vividly illuminate the parallels and resonances in the two men's lives and work. Matisse and Picasso are polar opposites but also complementary figures. Between them they are the originators of many of the most significant innovations of 20th-century painting and sculpture, but their relationship has rarely been explored in all of its closeness and complexity. In spite of their initial rivalry, the two masters eventually acknowledged one another as equals, becoming, in their old age, increasingly important to one another both artistically and personally. From the time of their initial encounters in 1906 in Gertrude and Leo Stein's Paris studio until 1917, they individually produced some of the greatest art of the 20th century and maintained an openly competitive relationship brimming with intense innovation. This period saw them create such works as Picasso's majestic "Woman with a Fan" of 1908 and Matisse's great portrait of his wife of 1913. Matisse responds to Synthetic Cubism in his "Piano Lesson" of 1916 and Picasso comes back in turn with a new, more decorative Cubism in "Three Musicians" of 1921. The 20s saw them grow apart, as Matisse moved from Paris to Nice and Picasso became involved with the Surrealists, but the 30s brought them together again, through their sheer fame and devotion to reality-based art. Their story continues until Matisse's death in 1954, when Picasso paid his friend and colleague tribute in his series Women of Algiers, of which he said, "When Matisse died, he left his odalisques to me as a legacy."

C'est à Nice et dans ses environs, à Vallauris et à Vence, que Matisse et Picasso se côtoient régulièrement à partir des années 1940, trouvant tous les deux dans cet espace méditerranéen la source de leur inspiration. Entre dialogue et rivalité, leur relation, nourrie d'échanges permanents, aboutit sans doute à l'une des plus fructueuses émulations artistiques du XXe siècle. Peintures, sculptures et oeuvres graphiques de chacun des deux artistes se répondent dans de subtils et fascinants jeux de miroir. Jeux de miroir aussi entre le peintre et son modèle, entre le peintre et lui-même. Un étroit maillage qui fut au coeur de la réflexion menée par les deux artistes sur les questions de la représentation du corps et de l'autoréflexivité de l'acte créateur. Des photographies de leurs ateliers respectifs, aussi, pour mettre en lumière les différences et les similitudes d'ambiance ; des documents - correspondances, catalogues d'exposition, revues et films - pour illustrer l'histoire des liens Matisse-Picasso à travers le prisme de cette thématique particulière : celle de la "comédie du modèle", comme Aragon aimait à désigner une séance de pose.

This catalogue of the major exhibition at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice presents a groundbreaking interpretatioin of the birth of modern art. Serge Lemoine, curator of the exhibition and director of the Musée d'Orsay, proposes that "modern art does not descend, as is commonly thought, from Manet and Impressionism, but from . . . the French painter Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898)." The author of monumental mural decorations in such civic buildings as the museums of Amiens, Lyons, Rouen, the Panthéon and the Sorbonne, Puvis de Chavannes had a remarkable influence on his contemporaries in France and abroad, including Seurat, Gauguin and Cézanne, as well as on later generations of artists. Equally indebted to Puvis de Chavannes are the great European symbolist painters, from Munch to Hodler. However, perhaps his most prestigious modern acolytes were Picasso and Matisse, who remained loyal to him all their lives. This volume features detailed scholarly contributions analyzing Puvis de Chavannes's work and all his affiliations, as well as offering rich critical and documentary data on his numerous and notable disciples. Accompanied by over five hundred illustrations, this volume is a superb evocation of a period of great artistic ferment and outstanding creativity. A landmark study, Toward Modern Art makes the bold argument that modern art does not descend, as is commonly described, from Manet and Impressionism, but rather from the unlikely figure of French painter Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898). This gorgeously illustrated volume with over 500 full color illustrations, was organized by Serge Lemoine, director of Musée d'Orsay in Paris, and includes over 15 essays by distinguished writers. Lemoine's side-by-side comparisons and expert commentary bear witness to his groundbreaking thesis.
