There are only a few artists who can master the art of the line as well as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Both try to get to the essence of shapes. Lines play an important role in this.
Dividing lines, cutting lines or connecting lines. A line is so powerful, that with a simple mark a recognizable face, figure or object can be put on paper. Supported by imagination, it is the foundation for modern art.
Together with Art Museum Pablo Picasso in Münster, Rijksmuseum Twenthe presents a double exposition about visual arts. In Enschede, the lines of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse are the focal points. From straight lines to decorative lines - when you take a close look, they are everywhere.
