Kathryn Brown, Loughborough University When Henri Matisse moved to Nice in 1917, he was inspired not only by the light and landscape of southern France, but also by its emerging film industry. This talk identifies links between the fashion and glamour of cinema, to Matisse’s works in the 1920’s. In particular, it re-evaluates Matisse’s portrayal of women and shows how popular cinematic culture set the stage for an exploration of gender, identity, and exoticism in painting.
