Since it opened this spring at the Tate Modern in London, “Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" has been a blockbuster, with lines forming most mornings despite timed tickets. Once the show ends on Sept. 7, officials there estimate it will have been seen by well over 460,000 people, the same number of visitors who attended “Matisse Picasso” in 2002, the Tate Modern’s most popular show ever.

Next it will head to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where it will be on view from Oct. 12 through Feb. 8. The museum is bracing for crowds and it too will offer timed tickets, which go on sale Friday on Members do not need timed tickets and may attend anytime. (Unlike the Tate, which is free but charges £18.00 — about $30.50 — for the special exhibition, MoMA does not charge for special exhibitions but admission to the museum is $25, $18 for 65+ and $14 for students.)
