Summary
"Discover the world of Henri Matisse through the eyes of his cat, La Puce. Join him and his two companions, Minouche and Coussi, as they spend their days in Matisse's sunny seaside apartment watching the artist create his paintings. As La Puce observes Matisse painting his masterpiece The Cat with the Red Fish, featuring Minouche, he too longs to be the subject of one of his paintings. After Matisse falls ill and can no longer paint standing up, La Puce tries to coax him back into painting by using himself as a model. When an accident happens, La Puce inspires the artist to create again . . . but this time using paper and scissors!"--Amazon.com.

Summary
The aim of these lectures is to make viewers feel welcome and comfortable in the company of paintings. By focusing on 65 masterpieces of Western painting, Professor William Kloss offers a vivid, visceral encounter with genius, shining light on the unique technical, stylistic, and expressive achievements of each painting. From the 14th century to the 20th, the images are examined for their qualities of uniqueness, impact, and emotional and intellectual resonance. The lectures are arranged chronologically, showing what painters of contrasting traditions and cultures were doing in the same period, thus following the progressive unfolding of each painter's art. These lectures open rich perspectives on Western civilization through encounters with some of the most significant, daring, and sublime paintings in Western art.
