Throughout history, artists have found inspiration from myriad sources; in the 20th century, these frequently include personal relationships between artists. In the exhibition Matisse and Beyond, juxtapositions between artworks highlight these productive and symbiotic relationships. Charles presents a number of pairings that demonstrate the lasting impact of creative influences, such as those shared between Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt, and Richard Tuttle and Agnes Martin.
