Matisse in Moscow: Icons and the Avant-Garde

Thursday, 07 February 2019 10.30am to Thursday, 07 February 2019 11.30am

Venue: Domain Theatre
Lecturer: Rosamund Bartlett

In October 1911, Henri Matisse made a historic journey to Moscow, to stay with his patron Sergei Shchukin, and advise him on the hanging of the radical works of modern art he had purchased in Paris. Rosamund will tell the story of this historic visit and its impact on the young Moscow avant-garde, discussing along the way how Shchukin fell in love with Matisse’s riotous paintings after infatuations with Monet and Gauguin, and how Matisse fell in love with Russian icons.
