About the Class
“Working before a soul-stirring landscape,” Henri Matisse wrote, “all I thought about was making my colors sing.” And sing they did. Matisse painted the world in dazzling tones, and fauvism was only the beginning. Join us as we study the artist’s extraordinary life, which itself followed a trajectory from darkness into light and color. Examine the 59 works by Matisse at the Barnes, including the radiant Le Bonheur de Vivre and the monumental Dance mural.
