About A Model for Matisse

Year Released:
Art and a Movie Barbara Freed tells the moving tale of Henri Matisse’s last great art project—the decorative cycle for the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence, France. Told through the words of Sister Jacques-Marie, the nun who assisted Matisse with the project, the film offers an intimate look at the elderly artist’s working methods and a reflection on love and friendship. The film will be preceded by Henri Matisse (1946), directed by François Campaux, which records Matisse’s creative process while he is working on a portrait of his grandson. In French with live translation provided by Brett Bowles, associate professor of French Studies. (DigiBeta presentation)
