MoMA The Museum of Modern Art New York

         During the Second World War, Matisse and Picasso exchanged further works and increasingly drew
         support from each other. After the war, when Picasso moved to the South of France, their relationship
         entered its final and closest phase. A concluding section of the exhibition, which explores Matisse’s
         and Picasso’s acrobatic figures (swimmers, dancers, and nudes) from the 1 920s onwards, focuses on
         the latter years and the startling affinities between their works.

         This exhibition is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Modern, London,
         and the Reunion des musées nationaux /Musée Picasso, Musée national d’art moderne / Centre Georges
