An opportunity to see the astonishing documentary film – The Model for Matisse - the Story of The Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence, often referred to as the Matisse Chapel or the Vence Chapel. It  documents the unique association between the nun Sister Jacques-Marie and the artist Henri Matisse. Their relationship began when she started working for him as a personal nurse, but soon she began posing for the painter. Eventually she played a central part in Matisse designing the Chapelle du Rosaire, one of the greatest accomplishments in Matisse's remarkable career.

Please note: the film is 67 minutes so lunch will be a little late that day!
