Henri Matisse is primarily known for his colourful paintings and brilliant paper cuttings, with their bright colours and many details. But probably few people are aware that in the autumn of his life, Matisse turned his gaze to the far north. The result was a unique series of Eskimo portraits, which can now quite extraordinarily be seen at Ordrupgaard, starting in August. More at Ordrupgaard
