Matisse kommt mir vor wie vom Himmel | Book presentation

The edition makes accessible for the first time the complete correspondence between the collector and founder of the Folkwang Museum Karl Ernst Osthaus and the painters Henri Matisse and Hans Purrmann. The correspondence thus opens up new sources on the early reception history of Matisse’s works in Germany, on the genesis of early major works by the painter, and on the founding of the Académie Matisse. 

At the Pinakothek der Moderne, Rainer Stamm (Landesmuseum Kunst & Kultur Oldenburg) introduces the edition and, together with Felix Billeter (Hans Purrmann Archive, Munich), presents a selection from the letters, which are available in print for the first time, in a dialogical reading.

This event will be held in German.
