The largest collection of Matisse works to ever be shown in Minnesota, the exhibit showcases 50 paintings and sculptures by artist Henri Matisse, as well as 30 prints and his book, Jazz. His work spanned genres and decades, and 60 years’ worth of his art is on display in this show, including his early art. Most of the pieces shown here were collected by the Cone sisters from Baltimore, who were early appreciators of his art. A companion exhibition, Chasing Matisse: American Moderns Under the Influence, displays the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ Matisse collection.<p>

Minneapolis Institute of Arts

When the Minneapolis Institute of Arts first opened its doors in 1915, it was the product of several decades of arts advocacy. A group of 25 citizens formed the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts in 1883 with the goal of giving their community access to creative arts. More than a century later, this commitment to the community has taken the permanent collections from 800 works to close to 80,000 objects and has made the museum Minnesota's largest art educator.

The collections, divided into seven curatorial areas, encompass a period of 5,000 years and hail from every corner of the world. The Asian Art collection represents 17 different Asian cultures, and Arts of Africa and the Americas holds more than 3,000 pieces of sculpture, basketry, painting, and beadwork. Temporary exhibitions bring collections of artwork from other institutions. The museum's interactive learning stations supplement understanding of topics such as modernism or 17th-century European painting with animation, video, and audio recordings.
