It's not often you get the chance to step into a famous artist's studio... let alone one like Matisse. But the Royal Academy's new exhibition will allow you to do just that.

Matisse in the Studio will be brimming with the artist's most treasured objects from all over the world: Buddhist statues from Thailand, Bamana figures from Mali, and masks from Africa. The objects rarely had any monetary value, but they were precious nonetheless. Many of them appeared inside his artworks, across a span of decades, constantly being reinvented afresh for each new setting.

African sculpture and masks seemed to be a particular favourite of his, and later on he adorned his Nice studio with items from the Islamic world. Later still, he started admiring the precision of Chinese calligraphy as he sought to create his own simplified language of signs.
