Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


December Journeys

[Zorah Debout, Henri Matisse. Oil on canvas. 1912. The State Hermitage Museum.]

In The Eye Has to Travel the emphasis isn't on Vogue's September issue but instead on the magazine's December offerings. It's explained that during Vreeland's years as editor, she really ramped up the fantasy in the last month of the year, giving readers vicarious journeys to places perhaps previously not thought of.

Here's my pick for a satisfying virtual trip: Artists’ Journeys: Sean Scully on Henri Matisse, an early 1990s BBC documentary in which Scully compares and contrasts his own work and sources of inspiration with those of the 20th-century master and even travels to Morocco to follow the path blazed by Matisse.
