A Model for Matisse 2006

Barbara F. Freed directed this documentary that explores the friendship between legendary artist Henri Matisse and the woman who inspired him to create some of his best works, Dominican nun Sister Jacques-Marie. The 83-year-old nun discusses her days as a model and muse for Matisse, including her role in what he considered his life's masterpiece: the paintings and stained-glass windows of the Chapel of the Rosary in the French Mediterranean village of Vence.
