Artists have long traveled for inspiration. Henri Matisse was moved by the Islamic textiles he encountered in North Africa, and Mondrian was deeply affected by the jazz and grid of Manhattan. Join us to discuss how these—and other—artistic journeys led to critical stylistic innovations.
This session is led by Lauren Kaplan.
