I feel extremely lucky to have attended the press view of the magnificent Matisse exhibition at Tate Modern on Monday. It was such an adventure – to start with, I had been on an overnight flight back from New York and ran straight from the airport into the Tate’s press view.
There was an extraordinary number of journalists there, many more than there has been at other Tate press views I have attended, mostly at Tate Britain.
The monumental cut-outs are overwhelming vibrant and expansive. This is the exhibition of the year.
