Throughout the history of modern art, artists have chosen a variety of subjects as vehicles for expression. Some are traditional, such as the nudes of Henri Matisse or the self-portraits of Max Beckmann; others are narratives, like Pablo Picasso’s depictions of an artist at work in his studio. This exhibition demonstrates the complexity surrounding the artistic notion of subject matter.
