Exhibition curator Klaus Ottmann introduces One-on-One: Carol Brown Goldberg / Henri Matisse.
As part of the One-on-One series, one painting and two ink drawings by DC-based artist Carol Brown Goldberg are placed in conversation with Henri Matisse's Interior with Egyptian Curtain (1948).
The One-on-One series engages an artist to select a work from the museum’s permanent collection and juxtapose it with one or several works of his/her own. Carol Brown Goldberg says about Matisse as an inspiration for her new body of work: "Matisse's Interior with Egyptian Curtain encompasses the world of the sublime, the ecstatic—an almost supernatural world of color, composition, and pattern. It is not just a world of pleasure, but one that allows tension and harmony to exist simultaneously. This ambiguity of forces, perhaps a reflection of our internal world, is an inspiration for endless gardens."
