Location: Manetti Shrem Museum, Community Education Room

Janet Bishop, SFMOMA’s Thomas Weisel Family Curator of Painting and Sculpture, is co-curator of Matisse/Diebenkorn, currently at SFMOMA through May 29. Through 100 paintings and drawings, this landmark exhibition explores the profound inspiration that Richard Diebenkorn, who spent most of his career in California, found in the work of Henri Matisse. This first major museum show to present the two artists’ works in dialogue reveals the remarkable affinities they shared in their approach to color, structure, paint handling, and subject matter. In this talk Bishop will share the story of Diebenkorn’s career-long fascination with Matisse, as well as some of the stories from the making of the show.

This event is sponsored by Art Studio Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-sponsors: Manetti Shrem Museum, DHI, Art History, Design
