JOHANNESBURG - The first exhibition in Africa by French impressionist artist, Henri Matisse, will open at the Standard Bank Gallery mid-year.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive educational programme taking in primary and high school pupils, their teachers and the public.

Matisse is regarded, with Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp, as one of the revolutionary artists of the 20th century.

He is known for his use of colour and his fluid original draughtsmanship. Best known as a painter, his works include printmaking, sculpture and remarkable paper cuttings.

The exhibition, from July to September, is brought by the Standard bank and the French Institute with French corporate sponsors.

It follows exhibitions at the Standard Bank Gallery by Joan Miro, Marc Chagall and Picasso.

Works by Matisse featured among those of 20th century masters hung in the gallery.
