Matisse has suffered a similar fate. Many of his paintings are deservedly iconic, but his sculpture's barely known. The Oxford Dictionary of Art admits almost dismissively that "Matisse made sculpture at intervals throughout his career", which makes it seem like he only sculpted when he wasn't painting.
SFMOMA's " Matisse, Painter As Sculptor" -- here till 16 September, and at The Baltimore Museum of Art 28 October 2007 - 3 February 2008 -- aims to correct that view by showing all the media he worked in, save the stage, along with that of other artists he was influenced by, like Cezanne, as well as those he influenced or with whom there was a mutual influence, like Picasso, Giacometti, and Maillol. It's a major opportunity to reassess the work of a miraculously gifted artist who moved between different media as if they were different rooms in the same house. An added bonus is the San Francisco connection he formed with collectors Sarah - his portrait of her is here - her husband Michael Stein, his great writer sister, Gertrude, her devoted companion, Alice B. Toklas, who grew up in a house within sneezing distance of The Mitchell Brothers Theatre and AMC 1000, and her next door friend, Harriet Levy, whose bequest includes several pictures here.
A common theme in Matisse's sculpture is struggle - a Capricorn specialty - which Stein emphasized in her groundbreaking 1909 portrait, " Matisse. A common theme in Matisse's sculpture is struggle - a Capricorn specialty - which Stein emphasized in her groundbreaking 1909 portrait, " Matisse.

" This thoroughly modern view that art should question received ideas of how it should look seems to be at odds with Matisse's almost infamous remark ( that ) " I dream of ... an art of balance... ( of ) something like a good armchair in which one rests from physical fatigue. " And the tension between these two statements about art that's blunt and art that's beautiful runs through many pieces here.
It's there in the smoothly painted yet "primitive" looking The Blue Nude: Memory of Biskra ( 1907 ), which once belonged to Stein, and in the dimpled surfaces of Reclining Nude ( Aurora ) ( 1907), which Matisse worked on at the same time.
...
Matisse presents these "opposites" as two sides of the same coin - everything changes as we look - and his experiments with anatomical distortion / re-arrangement are about this too. His bronze Large Seated Nude ( 1922-29 ), dates from his Nice period during which he produced some of his most famous paintings - Stein and Toklas' Baltimore friends, the Cone sisters' The Yellow Dress ( 1929-31 ) is here -- as well as drawings of the female form, seen from angles both logical and not, and his model's pose in Large Seated Nude mirrors that in the crayon transfer lithograph, Nude With Blue Cushion ( 1924 ), with the armchair supporting her there removed. But her poise remains intact despite the gravity of her situation. And who but Matisse could pull this off with such élan ? Yet he isn't just a quintessential French master devoted to visual pleasure and classical restraint, but one who always challenged, changed.
We tend to take the great for granted. Picasso's this way, Matisse that.
