Tomorrow, the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), located on the south bank of the Brisbane River, will present Matisse: Drawing Life, the most comprehensive exhibition of Henri Matisse’s prints and drawings ever mounted. Presented in partnership with the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the exhibition includes more than 300 drawings, prints and illustrated books by one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. Exploring the themes and subjects to which Matisse repeatedly turned throughout his long career, the exhibition provides insights into the artist’s daily drawing practice.
To complement the exhibition, GoMA’s Long Gallery will feature The Drawing Room, an interactive large-scale drawing studio for visitors, inspired by Matisse and his working environments.
