Henri Matisse
Bathers by a River
1909-10, 1913, 1916-17
Art Institute of Chicago

by Charlie Finch

I arrived at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday night for the opening of its powerful (and timed-ticket event) Matisse exhibition and immediately made a beeline for Bathers by the River. Standing in front of this greatest of paintings were the renowned sculptor Jackie Winsor and my colleague Jerry Saltz, who sported a nifty white Indiana Jones safari jacket.
