New York: Pierpont Morgan Library, 2002. Softbound. VG, may have a tear on front cover near spine and general wear along cover edges.. BW illustrated wraps. 320 pp., profusely illustrated in color and bw. This is an important monograph on a very important art dealer -- the son of Henry Matisse -- who introduced, through numerous exhibitions at his gallery, the works of young, lesser-known figures, including Joan Miro, Balthus, Giacometti, and Dubuffet. Includes an in-depth chronology of exhibitions at the Gallery from 1931 to 1989. "By the time of his death in 1989, Pierre Matisse had been instrumental in the creation of a community that encompassed not only the leading artists of the 20th century, but also an impressive roster of distinguished collectors and institutions. The degree to which he enriched the artistic climate of his adopted country cannot be overestimated. This publication documents many of the outstanding works exhibited at the Pierre Matisse Gallery and -- drawing upon the Pierre Matisse Gallery Archives, given to the Morgan Library in 1997 -- chronicles, through photographs, correspondence, and ephemera, the history of one of the most significant venues of 20th-century art." 61 artworks are featured in the exhibition, as well as a plethora of documentary ephemera and photographs.
