In 1930, Matisse left France for a trip to Tahiti, thus voluntarily marking a pause in his creation, and initiating a turning point in his work. The exhibition Matisse. Cahiers d'art, le tournant des années 1930 looks back at this decisive decade. The exhibition looks at Matisse's work in the 1930s through the prism of Cahiers d'art, the major avant-garde journal created by Christian Zervos in 1926. As the voice of international modernism and the aesthetic currents of his time, the magazine reports on the artist's production throughout the inter-war period.
