Did he ever paint the birds in the birdcage? How could he not paint the birds in the birdcage?! #matisse #mfaboston #matisseinthestudio

Here are a few highlights from my trip to the @mfaboston. So happy to participate in an impromptu performance rendition of “Now, Speak!” by Amalia Pica on the last day of the all women show Political Intent/Beyond Limits!, feeling #kuniyoshi for the Japanese print master showdown, a funky green Chihuly and taking notes for future installation projects. I will be back!

Ruminating on our visit to the new Matisse show at the @mfaboston yesterday. I love how this show brings together a mix of works and exhibits them with the objects Matisse collected and used in his work. (Swipe for more pics--sorry I had to crop to square for these)
I especially love how he draws vessels, so loose yet still capturing their details. And all the pattern 💕
From the MFA website: "Matisse in the Studio is the first major international exhibition to examine the roles that objects from the artist’s personal collection played in his art, demonstrating their profound influence on his creative choices. Henri Matisse (1869–1954) believed that these objects were instrumental, serving both as inspiration and as a material extension of his working process. In 1951, he described them as actors: “A good actor can have a part in ten different plays; an object can play a role in ten different pictures.” The exhibition presents a selection of major works by Matisse from different periods of his career—including approximately 34 paintings, 26 drawings, 11 bronzes, seven cut-outs and three prints, and an illustrated book. The artworks are showcased alongside about 39 objects that the artist kept in his studios—many on loan from the Musée Matisse, Nice, as well as private collections—and publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time. They include a pewter jug, a chocolate maker given as a wedding present and an Andalusian vase found in Spain, as well as textiles, sculptures and masks from the various Islamic, Asian and African traditions that Matisse admired.

"Moses Erecting the Brazen Serpent", by William Blake, (English, 1757–1827), pen and watercolor on paper. This fantastical painting depicts the story from the the Book of Numbers 21:4-9 where the people of Israel are being plagued by poisonous snakes in the camp. They beg Moses to ask God for some relief from the many deaths resulting from snakebites. God instructs Moses to make a serpent and raise it up on a pole so that anyone bitten by a snake could simply look at the snake on the pole and live. Moses made a bronze or copper snake and raised it up on a pole as instructed. It worked. To this day, the symbol of a snake on a pole is associated with healing.
While this is a great story, it is simply foreshadowing the really Good News.

John 3:14-17
"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." #blake #serpent #healing #life #sundaypost
