Matisse & Renoir: Lecture

The Alliance celebrates the exhibition Matisse & Renoir: New Encounters at The Barnes Foundation!

Two different activities: A lecture by Art Historian Terry Dolan and a guided tour of the exhibition Matisse & Renoir
with docent Nancy Gabel.

Excerpt from the Barnes Foundation website:
Matisse & Renoir: New Encounters at the Barnes, presented in the Roberts Gallery, offers a fresh perspective on renowned canvases from the collection. Featuring approximately 35 iconic works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri Matisse from the second floor of the collection galleries, the exhibition reflects the expansion of the Barnes’s educational program and emphasizes the historical and cultural context of the works.

Tracing the creative development of two foundational artists of European modernism, this exhibition will display Matisse and Renoir paintings from the same period in proximity for the first time, including Matisse’s The Joy of Life (1905–6) and Red Madras Headdress (1907) and Renoir’s Leaving the Conservatory (1876–77) and Mussel-Fishers at Berneval (1879). Creating space for new conversations between works—a critical aspect of education, research, and public access—it will give audiences a rare opportunity to view these paintings in new contexts and juxtapositions.
