Press Release

Acquavella Galleries is pleased to present Masterworks: From Cézanne to Thiebaud, a group exhibition on display in Palm Beach opening in November 2020.

On view will be works by Pierre Bonnard, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Jacob El Hanani, James Ensor, Max Ernst, Keith Haring, Ellsworth Kelly, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Jackson Pollock, Richard Prince, James Rosenquist, David Smith, Wayne Thiebaud, Bradley Walker Tomlin, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann in a variety of mediums. Though the exhibition spans multiple generations and movements, the artists included share a mastery of both space and color. 

A highlight from Masterworks: From Cézanne to Thiebaud is Henri Matisse’s 1944 work Nature morte aux mimosas sur fond noir. Matisse’s use of the color black was integral to his mastery of color. It was after his early Fauve works, which were characterized by an overall use of riotous color, that Matisse began “to use pure black as a color of light and not a color of darkness,” as he later recalled. He embraced black as a means to accent and highlight passages color and add a sense of boldness and intensity to his work. Instead of creating a void or sense of darkness, Matisse’s skillful use of black enabled his colors to shine.

The exhibition will be open to the public seven days a week at the Royal Poinciana Plaza.
