The title of this exhibition translates to ‘Matisse, the seduction of Michelangelo’ and is sub-titled ‘l’incontro di due grandi artisti sedotti dalla forma’ – the meeting of two great artists, both fascinated and entranced by ‘form’. Obviously not a literal meeting (nor a literal translation), but the exhibition of over 150 pieces by the French master demonstrates his journey towards the essence of form, the relationship between sculpture and colour, his view that he and Michelangelo shared inspiration and outlook.
