Matisse: Radical Invention-A talk with curator from the Art Institute of Chicago’s curator Stephanie D’Alessandro

When: Thu., April 15, 7 p.m. 2010

Members $5, Non-members $15 In the time between his 1913 return from Morocco and his 1917 departure for Nice, Matisse produced some of the most demanding, experimental, and enigmatic works of his career—paintings that are abstracted and heavily worked, geometric and sharply composed, and dominated by the colors black and gray. Learn more about the artist’s break with the past and exhilarating development of “the methods of modern construction,” the theme of the new exhibition Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-17 at the Art Institute of Chicago, which examines what is without question the most innovative and momentous, but little studied, decade of the artist’s career.
