Biographical / Historical:
The Pierre Matisse Gallery was founded in New York, New York, in 1931 by Pierre Matisse, youngest son of the French painter Henri Matisse. The gallery was located on the corner of Madison Avenue and fifty-seventh street in the Fuller Building, which had recently been built in the Art Deco style a few years prior. Matisse exhibited primarily European painters and sculptors, including Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Jean Dubuffet, Yves Tanguy, Balthus, and some U.S. artists Leonora Carrington, Alexander Calder, and many more. The gallery closed in 1989 upon Pierre Matisse's death.
