Katy Rothkopf: Henri Matisse: Searching for the New
CANCELLED due to inclement weather
Henri Matisse was one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century. Along with contemporaries such as Pablo Picasso, Matisse helped change the rules of art through his bold use of color, form, pattern, line, and space. This lecture will take a close look at the artist’s career through works from The Baltimore Museum of Art, the most comprehensive and largest collection of his work in the world. His close friendship with the Cone sisters of Baltimore, whose collection is now housed at the BMA, will also be explored.
Katy Rothkopf is the Senior Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at The Baltimore Museum of Art and a specialist in late 19th-century French painting.
