Our spotlight on Henri Matisse (1869-1954) examines the work and legacy of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Through a comprehensive but accessible introduction to the oeuvre of the artist, we will explore Matisse’s role and contribution to modern art history. While analyzing autobiographical information to better grasp the inspiration sources of this complex artist, we will proceed to an in-depth analysis of his most iconic works, especially those from his time in the south of France.

During our time together we will analyze Matisse’s pioneering series of fauvistic canvases in which he pursued the boldest expressions of color. We will also examine some of his finest works created after the decline of the Fauvist movement when he developed a rigorous style that emphasized flattened forms and decorative patterns. After a difficult battle with an illness that prevents him from painting, Matisse created yet another important body of work in the medium of papercut collages. In this seminar, we will also closely examine this playful and optimistic innovative series created in the last decade of his life.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art and published author, Dr. Timea Andrea Lelik, this interactive seminar will explore the contribution of this great artist to the history of art. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understating and appreciation of the most iconic works by Henri Matisse and how these have changed the course of modern art.

Dr. Lelik knows her subject matter well and has many slides to show Matisse's work, as well as explaining his life. Hadn't heard of Fauvism until this lecture! And learned that Matisse helped to design a church, something you don't normally associate with an artist. Very engaging!

Dr Lelik's well-organized talk included a huge number of slides, which was fantastic. The downside was that none of them were labeled. Because she speaks so fast (with close captioning not helpful due to accent), the three of us watching frequently looked at each other asking, "did you catch that?"
