Matisse and Friends

Today I had the pleasure of visiting the Denver Art Museum to see the “Cartier” exhibit. It was lovely – resplendent with silver, platinum, diamonds, sapphires and emeralds….but very conspicuous and awe-inspiring. I loved the room featuring the tools and benches and sketches of the artists of the House of Cartier. Downstairs was a small exhibit called “Matisse and Friends….” featuring the works of Matisse, Derain, Dufy and other impressionists. Pure beauty, pure delicious color. I loved the fact that the walls were painted shades of viridian green, persimmon, plum and sand- and there were soft couches in similar tones to sit and relax in front of the paintings. Underfoot: some of the most beautiful Oriental carpets I have ever seen.
