This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlights the exhibition of Henri Matisse’s cut-outs at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. 

MoMA’s "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" is the most extensive presentation of Matisse’s cut-outs ever. It was organized by MoMA and the Tate Modern, where it was on view over the spring and summer. MoMA will offer it through February 8, 2015. The exhibition is accompanied by a stellar catalogue that is particularly rich with documentary photographs taken in and around the places where Matisse worked in cut paper. (It was published in the U.S. by MoMA and is available from Amazon for just $38.) The exhibition was curated by a bi-national team that included Nicholas Cullinan and Flavia Frigeri at the Tate and by MoMA conservator Karl Buchberg, curator Samantha Friedman and this week’s first guest, Jodi Hauptman. 

Hauptman is a senior curator at MoMA. Most recently she has organized exhibitions of Georges Seurat’s drawings and Odilon Redon. 

On the second segment, Washington University-based art historian John Klein, one of America’s top Matisse experts, discusses how Matisse migrated projects from cut-outs to decorative art installations. Klein is just finishing up a book titled “Matisse’s Late Decorations and the Essential Quality of Art,” which will be published by Yale. 

These are Matisse’s Maquette for Red Chasuble (front and back), (1950-52) from MoMA’s own collection.

These are Matisse’s two most famous Blue Nudes. At top is Blue Nude II (1952), one of Matisse’s late cut-outs, and below it the painting many historians consider to be the most influential painting of the 20th century, Blue Nude (Memory of Biskra) (1907). On this week’s program, Hauptman and host Tyler Green discuss the relationship between the two works.
