Step into Matisse’s 1911 painting The Red Studio. We will consider this seminal work in the context of Matisse’s career, and by looking backward and forward in history. What is Matisse drawing from in his attempt to challenge traditional conceptions of space? And how did his work inspire artists like Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman in post-WWII New York?

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
