Approximately 20 prints and drawings demonstrate the continuing legacy of the BMA’s relationship with the Matisse family. Etta and Claribel Cone’s dedication to collecting the art of Henri Matisse established at the BMA one of the most comprehensive collections of the artist’s work. The close personal relationship between the artist and the Cone sisters provided the opportunity to acquire key works from the late 20s and early 30s while encouraging Etta Cone to collect all aspects of the artist’s work—painting, sculpture, and graphic arts. Recognizing the unique character of the BMA’s Matisse collection, recent gifts from the family have now established the BMA’s holdings as the most comprehensive collection of Matisse prints in North America. The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation in New York made a promised gift of an impressive group of prints from the artist’s later years. A major gift from the collection of Marguerite Duthuit Matisse included prints as well as remarkable drawings related to a masterwork from the Cone Collection, The Yellow Dress.
