Moroccan Cafe. 1912-13.
o/c, 176x210 cm
This older, 40 minute video of Sean Scully's commentary on Henri Matisse is well worth seeing. His particular understanding of Matisse's time in Morocco provided brilliant insights for me. I have always been challenged by the paintings done in the North African country, such as Moroccan Café, which Scully takes apart in this video. Remember that Matisse's Blue Nudes were all generated by his North African experiences. Enjoy.
