Vatican to display late works by Henri Matisse

In an effort to increase visibility of modern and contemporary works of art in their collection, the Vatican Museums is preparing a new room devoted to sacred art by Henri Matisse. The new space will house designs, three large-scale preparatory drawings and numerous objects the artist created in 1948-1951 for a small Dominican chapel (Chappelle du Rosaire) in Vence, France.
