OP MATISSE ET BAUDELAIRE (Matisse and Baudelaire). Musee Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambresis, 1992. 134 pp. (2 foldout) with 164 ills. (11 col.). 31 x 25 cm. LC 93-116455 ISBN 2907545132 In French.
Closely examining Matisse's involvement in the production of an illustrated edition of Les fleurs du mal, Baudelaire's celebrated collection of poems, this catalogue presents portrait sketches, decorative designs and many preliminary drawings executed by the artist between the early 1940s and the book's publication in 1947. Two substantial texts chronicle the project's difficult history and evaluate Matisse's interpretation of the poet's themes.
