Reviews

Matisse in the Barnes Foundation is an 181-pound, 3-volume set with more than 600 sumptuous color reproductions [and] may be one of the most gorgeous coffee-table books you will ever own. As it happens, Matisse in the Barnes Foundation is much more than a pretty face. Once you've read the 90,000-word essay by Yve-Alain Bois, as well as the insightful commentaries on all the paintings by independent art historians Claudine Grammont and Karen K. Butler, you may never see the former Fauve's art the same way again. If you can't make it to Philadelphia, you couldn't ask for a better guide to Matisse's work than this three-volume set devoted to one of the modern period's greats.
