About the Class
“Long live painting,” Henri Matisse wrote on a 1925 postcard to his friend Pierre Bonnard. The dialogue between these two artists is long and fascinating, carried out not only in letters but also on canvas, through their often-similar treatment of interiors, still life, and the female nude. Join us as we detail their 40-year conversation in paint.
