Henri Matisse: Jazz & Poetry on Paper, Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, South Carolina

September 15, 2017-January 15, 2018

Daringly modern artist Henri Matisse experimented with many mediums and devoted a major part of his career to reimagining books as art objects in their own right. He brought to life some of the greatest works of French literature, interpreting poetry and myths with playfully looping gestures, elegant lines, and brightly colored shapes in a distinct and wholly unique way. Now on view at the Columbia Museum of Art, this sweeping exhibition of 81 works celebrates four of Matisse’s books, including his most famous, the colorful Jazz portfolio from 1947.

August 19-November 17, 2017

Two TJC paintings, Mountain Courtship and Mountain Philosopher, are included in a new major exhibition now on view at the Huntington Museum of Art. James R. Hopkins: Faces of the Heartland examines the refined skills Hopkins displayed as a figure painter working in rural Appalachia in the early twentieth century. Hopkins’ sensitive depictions sought to capture a way of life that was isolated from the modern age and, at the same time, endangered by encroaching urbanization and industrialization.
