Art Matters Lecture: Todd Cronan

Matisse’s Hands

Presentation by:
Todd Cronan, Associate Professor of Art History, Emory University

At the onset of World War II, Henri Matisse's art underwent a startling change of direction. Inventing a dramatic new technique of cut-outs, Matisse explored aspects of the world that were largely absent from his previous work. This talk will trace the development of Matisse's late cut-outs and the new forms of expression they provoked.
