Henri Matisse: Jazz

Gifted by the Reva and David Logan Foundation, a rotating selection of Henri Matisse’s Jazz prints will be on permanent display at the Logan Art Center in Chicago.

Reva and David Logan’s collection of modern illustrated books was “one of the most important ever formed in the United States and a manifestation of their passion for volumes where inspired text joins creative original graphic art to form a unified whole.” Jazz is “Matisse’s most important artist’s book because it is the only one that he is both author and illustrator...Matisse started on the project in mid-1943. It was conceived as an album of twenty plates and Matisse wrote the accompanying text in 1946, providing a revealing commentary on his subjects, method and philosophy.

As an enduring legacy to David, Reva, and the entire Logan family, displaying the Matisse prints at the Logan Center celebrates both jazz and the arts and creative collaboration more broadly.
