Describing What I See—Articulating Matisse
Presented by Fredda Cassidy
What do we see when we look at a painting? a quilt? The proverb, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” springs to mind. In this episode from Gather’s Design Element series, Fredda takes us beyond the “beauty” response—“I like this”—“I dislike that”—by parsing Matisse's painting, The Blue Window. Using design vocabulary to describe and comment on the piece, she will model how to provide valuable critique to yourself and others by applying design terminology to a variety of quilts.
