Matisse vs Picasso : The Great I-Can-Do-Anything Better-Than-You Rivalry - A Lecture by Fred Dixon
Thursday, April 30 at 6:30 pm

Hear how the fascination with each other’s work became almost an obsession with the two giant figures of 20th century art. From the day they first met, each knew the other was doing something he could not do himself. One of the most intense rivalries in the history of art shows us how competition stimulates growth and flashes of genius. Fred Dixon and his wife Martha are avid art collectors. Both served as docents at the Barnes Foundation for 10 years. Fred is the author of “700 Years of Art History: Pre-Renaissance to Modernism”, published in 2013. Copies will be available for purchase for $35.
