Program Description

Event Details

Over an intense nine weeks in the summer of 1905 in the small fishing village of Collioure, France, Henri Matisse and Andre Derain embarked on a partnership that led to a new, radical artistic language later known as Fauvism. Using the Met’s exhibition Vertigo of Color as a springboard, join museum educator Alice W. Schwarz in an exploration of their daring, energetic experiments with color and perspective.  (Sponsored by the Friends of the Library)
