"This is a beautiful portrait and stunning invitation." - Georges Matisse (Henri Matisse's nephew)
This invitation to the exhibition and dedication of a gallery to Matisse's daughter, Margueritte, needed to be fun and exciting, but also represent Matisse's black and white prints without overwhelming them. The piece opens from Margueritte's photograph to color panels inspired by Matisse's palette. A series of six prints of his daughter is revealed, showcased on their own without distraction.
Done while at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
