"Matisse: Cutting into Color"
About the gallery talk:
The great 20th Century French painter and sculptor, Henri Matisse rendered his artistic vision in several distinctive styles during his long career -- chiefly Impressionism, Pointillism and Fauvism, but perhaps the most avante-garde was the medium of cut paper. This gallery talk will examine Matisse's life by looking at the most important works from his early years, through his friendly rivalry with Picasso, to his final form of artistic expression, the cut-outs, which are some of his most creative works.
The Janet Mandel and Beth Stein team taught art history for twelve years at Columbia High School in Maplewood. In 2004 they were the recipients of the "Innovations in Special Education Award" from the New Jersey School Boards Assn. (NJSBA) Teachers of the Year Award. They have conducted workshops for docents at the Montclair Art Museum and have lectured at MAM and at the Morris Museum, as well as at several adult schools.
All are welcome to the gallery talk and to view these art works.
