: Three Painters

by LAWRENCE GOWING
A painter's view of working methods and common ground in work by three great artists, Bruegel, Goya, Matisse. Matisse
The Triumph of the Self
'The business of painting is here and now. In the 20th century great painters show their own new ways of living in the present.'
This last film of three by the distinguished painter and writer Sir Lawrence Gowing explores a small number of paintings by Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and visits three places which crucially influenced his developing use of pattern and colour -
Morocco, Nice and Collioiire, a little fishing village in south-west France.
'The unities that Matisse wanted were to be created out of the basic stuff of painting, the very colour that he thought of as "stirring the sensual heart of man".'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
