1 pm on Oct 31 (Sun)

Under the framework of Library Fest 2021, the Alliance Française de Bombay Library will be conducting a special Online Art Appreciation Workshop on the French Artist Henri Matisse. The workshop will highlight his life & artistic style and will include a fun collage-making session.

Matisse is widely acknowledged as one of the artists who revolutionised the visual arts in the beginning of the 20th Century. He was known for his intense use of colours, flattened forms, and decorative patterns. When ill health in his final years prevented him from painting, he created an important body of work in the medium of cut paper collage.

The Workshop on Matisse is being organised for the Current Students & Alumni of AF Bombay’s French for Kids Courses (9 to 13 years of age) in partnership with the Library Network of the Alliances Françaises in India & Nepal and the French Institute in India.
