Henri Matisse: The Vence Chapel
Bernard Chauveau Edition, 2018
From 1942 to 1954, Monique Bourgeois, who became Sister Jacques-Marie, traces her encounter with Henri Matisse, at the orgin of the creation of the chapel of the Rosary, in Vence. Year after year, she delivers in a living testimony the complicity that bound her to the painter. The publication in this work of her correspondence with Henri Matisse reveals the depth of their friendship.
