Bernard Jacobson Gallery

Coinciding with the Royal Academy exhibition ‘Matisse in the Studio’, Bernard Jacobson Gallery has organised an exhibition of the French artist’s paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints. Significant pieces include L’Artiste et le modèle nu, a rare self-portrait which shows Matisse painting one of his most important models, Antoinette Arnoud; Nu aux jambes croisées, a sensual painting of Matisse’s assistant Lydia Delektorskaya; and Tête du Marguerite, an enigmatic portrait bust of the artist’s daughter. Designed by Nick Gowing Architects, the gallery occupies the lower levels of the mid-century French Railway House, at the intersection of Piccadilly and Duke Street St James’s.

Until 28 October; 28 Duke Street St James’s, London SW1Y 6AG; www.jacobsongallery.com
