This work accompanies an exhibition organised, in partnership, by Tate Modern, the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, and the Museum of Modern Art. It examines the crucial relationship between Matisse and Picasso. The introduction explains the way in which the work of each artist both inspired and often provoked the other. The illustrations of the paintings and sculptures are grouped in sections, each accompanied by an introductory text, with the intention of demonstrating evidence of artistic encounters between Matisse and Picasso over the course of their careers. In fact later in life Picasso himself stated that time would show that he and Matisse had been following very similar paths during the years that had established their individual artistic supremacy.

Publishers Weekly, 2003-02-10 It may have been obvious at the time, but the fact that the two (arguably) greatest painters of the 20th century exchanged ideas fluidly, obliquely and prolifically comes as a shock when put as starkly as in this catalogue and the international blockbuster exhibition it accompanies. The authors, eminent curators all, put together the exhibition (currently hanging at New York's Museum of Modern Art) and contribute a total of 34 short essays contrasting particular works and exploring the currents of the two men's mutual influence, including fauvism and cubism. Matisse's Le bonheur de vivre (1905-6) cemented itself in Picasso's mind from their first meeting, and would "reverberate in Picasso's imagination throughout his life," writes Golding. Varnedoe notes the influence of Matisse's Goldfish and Palette on Picasso's 1915 Harlequin, recalling how a dealer said that Matisse declared that his goldfish had "led to" the other man's harlequin. Unfortunately, an indifferent layout and setting of the text takes some of the charge out of the comparisons-a problem that extends to the flat-seeming cover. And a fairly big chunk of Picasso's oeuvre may look dated to many readers, particularly in comparing his late drawings with Matisse's cut-outs. But the mini-essays are of high quality, and anyone who cares about 20th century art will want to be able to trace the overt and covert steals and competitions chronicled here, as well as the often warm personal relationship. (Feb.) Forecast: For readers who don't want to pay the high admission fee here, there is Jack Flam's Matisse and Picasso: The Story of Their Rivalry and Friendship (Forecasts, Jan. 6) It has fewer illustrations, but gets at the exchanges.
