Evening Lecture Series: Violinist at the Window
February 3, 2010
The work of the Post-Impressionist painter Henri Matisse is characterized by his vivid colors, flowing figures, and interior compositions. But some of his most famous pieces are not only portraits of individuals but of the complex issues the artist himself was facing. Join us as we explore “Violin in a Window”, created while Matisse was grappling with a diagnosis of future blindness. Examine the work through the lens of the psychology and challenges that this painting represents. Celebrated New Art Center instructor John Murray will explore the uncertainty that created this piece.
