Talk: Gallery Course—Matisse and the School of Paris

8:30 am | Sat, February 9, 2019
Brown Auditorium

Henri Matisse, one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, influenced generations of artists. His innovative use of color and line helped free art from a reliance on representation, paving the way forward to dozens of new artistic styles. In this gallery course, hear about Matisse's early experiments with color, which he pursued alongside Rouauot, Manguin, Derain, and others, before he moved to the south of France. Then explore the wider world of Paris in the 1920s, when a large group of artists congregated there, inspired by the innovations of Picasso and Matisse. After an introductory lecture, tour the museum's galleries of Modern Art. The class will be led by director of adult programs Mary Lenihan.
