An exhibit of nearly 40 paintings, prints, and drawings by Weber, Matisse, and other artists that inflenced Weber's avant garde painting style.
Back when it was cheap, American artists used to flock to Paris. Such is the case for American artist Max Weber, who studied there from 1905 to 1908. It was there he discovered the work of modernist painters Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Rousseau, who so impressed him that he helped bring cubism to the United States. Although his name may not be as familiar as Matisse’s or Picasso’s, today, Weber is considered one of the most significant American modernists. The new exhibition at the BMA, Max Weber: Bringing Paris to New York, explores how Weber’s time abroad influenced his work, transforming his style from classicism to futurism and cubism. The exhibit features more than 30 of Weber’s prints, paintings, and drawings, as well as pieces from Weber’s personal collection by the artists who inspired him. (Alexa Kwiatkoski)
