The Life and Art of Henri Matisse with Christian Conrad

Henri Matisse (1869-1954)

Henri Matisse is the leading figure from the Fauvist movement, so named for its wild use of color. Matisse revolutionized how we associate emotion within art by using abstract coloration and soft forms to convey his meaning. Join us for Saturdays at LHUCA as we examine some of Matisse’s best known art, including “The Joy of Life,” “The Dance,” and his famous portraits of his wife. As part of the discussion we will also see how Matisse’s influence upon art continues into the world of today.

This event is free to the public

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
