Understanding Henri Matisse
‘Understanding Henri Matisse’. Matisse with Picasso, was one of the two great giants of modern art. In this talk, he is tracked in his search for pictorial paradise, through his paintings and cut-outs. His relationship with his family, his love of music, his rivalry with Picasso and not least the support of his great Russian patron Shchukin all conspire to help him achieve a kind of visual nirvana.
