Stanley Whitney: Dance with Me Henri

Approximately 15 works on paper celebrate Stanley Whitney’s (b. Philadelphia, PA, 1946) lifelong engagement with Henri Matisse’s color, drawing, and composition and reveal his thinking through the stained-glass windows that are now a permanent feature of the BMA’s Ruth R. Marder Center for Matisse Studies.

These works connecting French modern art to other forms of making, including jazz, mid-century New York City painting, and the quilts of Gee’s Bend. Whitney had visited Matisse’s stained-glass windows at the Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence in Southern France several times and his process of building stacks of color and playing with opacity and transparency was a natural fit for the form of the glass window, both its traditional aspects—the pane, leaded and blown glass—and its contemporary possibilities.
