Persian Matisse


According to Professor Michael Barry, Matisse was overwhelmed by the Persian miniatures in the Paris and Munich exhibitions of 1903, 1910 and 1912, then by masterpieces in southern Spain and Morocco during his three journeys there between 1911 and 1913.

Professor Barry's illustrated talk will explore these connections in depth, within the context of painting’s amazing aesthetic revolution in the early 20th century.
