A man looks at 'The Dream' 1940 (C, in color) by Henri Matisse on display in the exhibition 'Matisse: In Search of True Painting' November 26, 2012 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This wall re-creates an exhibit in the Galerie Maeght in Paris from 1945 that included large framed photographs documenting the evolution of the painting. The Met exhibition, which opens to the public December 4, explores Matisse’s painting process by showcasing 49 vibrantly colored canvases that demonstrate the artist’s tendency to use his completed canvases as tools, repeating compositions in order to compare effects, gauge his progress, and, as he put it, “push further and deeper into true painting.” AFP PHOTO/Stan HONDA (Photo credit should read STAN HONDA/AFP/Getty Images)
