A Younger Matisse at the Met, 1869-1906

with Michael Norris Ph.D.
Henri Emile Benoît Matisse (1869-1954)—an artist famed for his original use of line and color—compared his artistic development to the growth of a seed. We will trace that growth in Matisse’s life story until his mid-thirties by examining examples from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He came by the seed metaphor naturally—he was the son of a seed merchant in a northern French town. Despite his conservative appearance and work habits, Matisse continually absorbed new ideas as he worked in Paris and the South of France. We will leave Matisse as he becomes a leader of the “Fauves” or “Wild Beasts” (whose paintings expressed emotion in wild, often dissonant colors).

Wise Aging

 The “Wise Aging” program, based on the book Wise Aging written by Rachel Cowan and Linda Thal, is designed to help us find new joy in life and grow in wisdom, resilience and spirit. To achieve our goals, we will use the techniques of reflective discussions, Jewish text study, journaling, and mindfulness practice. This online program offers social, emotional and spiritual insights to help you achieve a fulfilling and active older age – one that recognizes the opportunities of growing older as well as the challenges. Topics include: relationships with adult children and spouses, cultivating well-being, developing nourishing friendships, forgiveness and reconciliation, living with loss and creating a legacy.
