Conversations with Matisse
Discover the impact of exuberant light, colour and line in the much-anticipated blockbuster exhibition, Matisse: Life & Spirit, at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and in the work of acclaimed Australian artist Wendy Sharpe.
Begin with a private visit to the studios of award-winning artists Wendy Sharpe and Bernard Ollis in St Peters. Hear from Wendy and Bernard about their major and recent artworks, and about the enduring inspiration and influence of Matisse’s signature style on their lives and work.
Then, guided by Wendy Sharpe, enjoy a unique opportunity to discover an outstanding artist’s work in the company of another. Take a private tour of the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ acclaimed exhibition, Matisse: Life & Spirit, organised in conjunction with the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Unique to Sydney, the exhibition features over 100 works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and cut-outs, and showcases the master’s extraordinary creative range and depth.
This tour is part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW in partnership with Renaissance Tours.
