This is the third of four explorations into Henri Matisse’s The Yellow Dress by Jay Fisher, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs. In part one, we find out more about Matisse’s process, and discover how this dress relates to his history and life. In part two, we see some of the studies for the painting, and learn more about other related works.
In this episode, we look at two paintings that followed The Yellow Dress, to see how Matisse’s work developed after this important piece.
