In Montmartre: Picasso, Matisse and the Birth of Modern Art

[ Online Talk )

This event has passed.

In this Thursday evening talk to tie in with our Degas to Picasso: International Modern Masters exhibition, Sue Roe will vividly bring to life the bohemian world of art in Paris between 1900-1910. She will look at the extraordinary community of artists, writers, musicians and performers that converged in the cafés and cabarets of Montmartre during the first decade of the century.

The cross-fertilisation of painting, writing, music and dance produced a panorama of activity characterized by the early works of Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Derain, the appearance of the Ballet Russe and the salons of Gertrude Stein, leading to a revolution in the arts.

Sue Roe is the author of several books, including a New York Times bestselling collective biography of the Impressionists and a widely praised work on the artist Gwen John.

This talk will be delivered via Zoom.

Already busy that day? Not to worry, everyone who books a ticket will be emailed a recording of the talk a few days later, even if they were unable to attend the talk live.

The real revolution in the arts first took place not, as is commonly supposed, in the 1920s to the accompaniment of the Charleston, black jazz and mint juleps, but more quietly and intimately, in the shadow of the windmills – artificial and real – and in the cafes and cabarets of Montmartre during the first decade of the century.

Sue Roe is the author of several books, including a New York Times bestselling collective biography of the Impressionists and a widely praised work on the artist Gwen John.
