Matisse: The Only Blue interweaves scenes from the second half of artist Henri Matisse's life in the south of France (1907-1954), with reflections on his artwork. The work explores: artistic creation and community, love and betrayal, landscape, home and exile, family, and war. It portrays an eclectic mix of artists, dancers, models, gallery owners, art patrons, friends and family members, struggling through the upheavals of the first half of Twentieth Century, culminating in the devastating realities of two world wars and the economic collapse wedged in between.
