Matisse's art continues to be popular, but also to be misunderstood as an art of hedonistic pleasure. This lecture, presented by John Elderfield, Chief Curator Emeritus, Department of Painting and Sculpture, and organizer of the exhibition Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917, explores the important lessons that Matisse's art, and his attitudes towards it, continue to teach us more than a century after he burst into public attention.
In conjunction with the exhibition Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917
