Consul General of France Graham Paul visited St Louis Feb 14 & 15 on the occasion of the official celebrations marking the 250th Anniversary of the founding of St Louis.
The exhibit features more than 100 works, some of which have never been seen outside of France. Works includes large-scale sculptures from the garden that were created in the 17th through 20th centuries by artists including François-Joseph Bosio, Antoine Coysevox and Aristide Maillol, and paintings, photographs and drawings that depict the Tuileries.
Spanning six decades of Matisse’s prolific career, with an emphasis on the artist’s earliest works, this special exhibition features 50 works of painting and sculpture, 30 prints, and the artist’s book Jazz.
