Thursday, June 23, @ 7:00 pm via Zoom
Presenter: Janet Mandel, Arts Educator

This program will NOT be recorded.


The remarkable career of Henri Matisse, one of the most influential artists of the Twentieth Century, fundamentally altered the course of modern art. Spanning six and a half decades, his vast creative output encompassed painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic arts, and paper cutouts. This talk will examine his extraordinary life and many of his important works. His friend and sometime rival Pablo Picasso once said, “All things considered, there is only Matisse.”
