More than 90 paintings and drawings by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) show the French modern master's enduring influence on one of the greatest post-war American painters.  Diebenkorn's long engagement with Matisse's work is among the most productive instances of one painter looking at another's paintings in the history of 20th-century art.

This landmark exhibition brings together a stunning array of works loaned from museums and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe to follow the trajectory of Diebenkorn's long and successful career with some of the powerful works by Matisse that the younger artist would have seen.

The Baltimore Museum of Art is the only East Coast venue for this highly anticipated exhibition, co-organized with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
