Date: Sunday November 17, 2013, at 3 pm - 4:30 pm
Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center
Admission: Free. Reservation required
In 1941 Pierre Courthion conducted an extensive interview with Henri Matisse that was seen at the time as a vital assessment of his career. But just weeks before the book was to come out, Matisse suppressed its publication. This rich conversation was published for the first time this year by the Getty Research Institute. On November 17 at 3:00 p.m. in the Harold M. Williams Auditorium in the Getty Center, Tyler Green, editor of Modern Art Notes, will discuss the significance of "Chatting with Henri Matisse" with the book's editor, art historian Serge Guilbaut.
