If a project is not completely funded, ArtsFund will generally still provide the funds donated to the project sponsoring organization to be used in the discretion of that organization. In such event, the project organization may follow up with donors who gave to that project to explain how that donation will be used.

Since 1991, when Paysage d’Hiver aux Bords de la Seine, Seattle Art Museum's only Matisse painting, was acquired, its condition has required a lengthy stay in museum storage. The cost to bring this beautiful and important work to the public, including conservation and proper framing, is $7,500 and we need YOUR help to put this Matisse on the gallery walls!
If this painting looks different from other works by Matisse that you’ve seen, that’s because it is! This painting, from his formative period, reveals Matisse to have been a participant in a late variant of Impressionism, a route he took to get to his better-known style—and Matisse painted this as the art world transitioned from Impressionism to Modernism, making Paysage d’Hiver aux Bords de la Seine a rare glimpse of the artist caught between movements.
This Matisse painting is an avant-garde, post-Impressionist fantasia of color painted just before he adopts the radical style known as Fauvism. A decades-old varnish was recently removed from the surface of the painting, but the Matisse will require further conservation to clean away dirt that was locked under the varnish and into the brushstrokes on the canvas. Additional work is necessary to replace the current 1950's frame with a more appropriate period frame that provides a more authentic experience and allows the painting to really shine and speak to each viewer. The painting's current frame mutes the bold colors the artist used, and its weak carving undermines the assertive brushstrokes of the painting.
Putting the Matisse on view is part of a larger effort to re-envision the European galleries at SAM Downtown. Currently, the European suite of galleries leaves off at the 18th century, and the Modern/Contemporary galleries begin in the 1930s. The new installation (scheduled for March 2014) fills in those formerly absent decades, tracing the precursors to and the rise of modernism. This Matisse painting is an important highlight from SAM's collection and will be a stunning representation of 20th century European art in these newly re-installed galleries.
Your donation of any amount will help SAM put this stunning and pivotal work by Henri Matisse on view for our community to enjoy.
The $6,975 raised for this project will go directly to the effort to put the painting on public view, including:
