ATLANTA – Henri Matisse: A Celebration of French Poets and Poetry – Oglethorpe University Museum of Art – On display now through May 9, 2010 An Exhibition of Matisse drawings and lithographs

The Oglethorpe Museum of Art presents the exhibition, "Henri Matisse: A Celebration of French Poets and Poetry", a collection of drawings and lithographs originally created to accompany the lines of celebrated French poets, Stéphane Mallarmé and Pierre Ronsard. These prints and drawings offer a different aspect of Hénri Matisse (1869-1954) and his body of work, who is best known for his paintings as well as his use of vibrant color.

After a trip to Tahiti, Matisse returned to Paris in 1930 where Alber Skira commissioned him to illustrate the poems of French poets Pierre Ronsard, a Renaissance poet who referred to as the "father of French poetry," and Stéphane Mallarmé, a nineteenth century poet and theorist known for his translation of Edgar Allen Poe’s works into French.

Matisse’s artistic creations were presented in a hybrid-form called a livre d’artiste (artist’s book) — a new genre created at the turn of the century combining visual art and the written word. These illustrated books were intended to be a work of art in themselves, with small numbers published and presented in a non-traditional portfolio format, and even deluxe editions with handmade paper. For the most part, Matisse himself designed the poetry writings, page layout, paper, typeface, and of course illustrations for the books.
