Matisse in Morocco: The Paintings and Drawings, 1912-1913. Teachers' Packet. A USA/USSR Joint Project.
Henri Matisse (1869-1954) is recognized as one of the great artists of the twentieth century. The paintings and drawings that he executed in Morocco in 1912 and 1913 reveal a pivotal stage in the artist's career. His Moroccan paintings have been compared to an interior journey taking place side by side with the outer one. This packet includes background information on Matisse's life and travels; eight slide images that also are reproduced in black and white in the guide; descriptions of the exemplars and suggested student activities; selected references; and an abbreviated guide to Morocco with a brief glossary of Islamic and Moroccan terms.
